On social media: “I see it as something I struggle to engage with authentically. And therefore, I don’t feel like I need to force it. It works for many people, and they know how to express themselves within that format. I’m more of a one-on-one person. That’s definitely where I feel like I can communicate and have rich interactions with people. I rarely find that any relationships I have are strengthened through social media. And at the same time, I don’t feel like I struggle with being not socially engaged. Even if I’m not on Instagram, I’m still fully aware of what’s going on in the world.”

On her mental health: “My work is really emotional. So, I feel like I’m f–king with my nervous system. I think it’s really important that I meditate and find moments to figure out how to shed my work off of me. I do yoga, for sure. I’m not necessarily working to gain a tremendous amount of muscle. I do yoga because I want to have access to my body for a long time. I’ve also been working on doing different forms of facial massage because I use my face a lot in my work. Doing these habits has a large effect on my mental health. I think working on our minds without working on our bodies is only doing half the work.”

On the third season of You: “I’m excited for people to see it and see their responses. It’s the result of many people working in a very focused and controlled way. We worked throughout the pandemic, and it wasn’t easy, but I think we managed to make something that might be better than the previous season, even under the circumstances.”

There’s some big news for You fans!
