“So I subscribed to the Delco Times, so I would read this newspaper every day, and there would regularly be some article about Wawa,” Kate explained on an episode of The Los Angeles Times“Envelope” podcast. “It almost felt like a mythical place, Wawa.”

“And so by the time I got there, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s real!’ It was like Lapland,” she said, laughing.

“Walking into a Wawa ultimately felt, it was kind of an honor in a funny way because to me, that was the heart of Delco. To finally walk through the door of a Wawa, I felt like, ‘Ah, yes, I’m here! I belong! This is where it’s at!’ Wawa,” she said.

Kate added that the only thing she bought at the store was coffee, but that she really enjoyed the beloved chain’s ambiance.

She also revealed recently that she climbed into the trunk of a car to help make one of her co-stars feel more comfortable on set.
