Lawrence added: “As I said, thankfully I have never had to go through anything as traumatic in real life, I hope that remains the case – because filming it was draining physiologically and emotionally.
“I tried not to overthink it too much and make sure that the stuff that happened on set was as organic as possible. “So making sure not to under rehearse, but probably even more critically over-rehearse it. I didn’t want to make it stale or insincere when we filmed it.
“I hate it when a script tells you when you need to break down in tears at a specific point because that automatically puts an inherent pressure onto performing at that moment because the script tells you to.
“I feel the actor is far more interesting to just feel when these little nuances come, because if it’s an emotional scene, whether tears come or not if you as an actor are feeling it, the audience will feel it too. I definitely felt it filming with Emma that day, so hopefully, that will show across on screen.”
Emmerdale airs weekdays at 7:30pm on ITV, with an hour-long episode airing on Thursdays.
