Well, it’s based on an aspect of my own personality, which is the struggle between being logical and going with your heart, with your impulses. If I always understand where she’s coming from, you can play it from a grounded place. But we try to make it so that you understand, even if it’s not the correct thing, why she’s doing what she’s doing.
