During the panel, Zachary talked about slapping a young co-star for a scene in the show, which will premiere on Thursday, February 12.

“It was a big scene with a lot of technical elements to it and the thing that was most important to everyone was the safety of the kids. Obviously we had to do it repetitively. But we isolated the moment of the slap. There was clear communication with the kids. And then all the explosive anger and emotions was all done without the kids there. It was really well handled. And oddly, for all of us, since we spent so much time shooting that sequence, it was enjoyable time for bonding and getting to know each other, even though it was in the context of this horrific act. There was a lot of thought put into it so that it was both safe and as dynamic as it needed to be,” Zachary shared.
