From ELLE:

What initially drew you to the role of Claire?
She felt like a very modern woman. She’s very intelligent, very strong, and has found herself in a place where she constantly has to fight to be who she is. It’s such a crazy concept for her not to stand up and fight for what she believes is right and just. She never sees herself as a victim and uses whatever she has at her disposal to get through adverse times.

Yes, she’s a tough cookie. But vulnerable, too. A full-spectrum woman. Did you have any “Claires” in your life who inspired you?
So many! I have two incredible sisters who have very high-powered jobs and kids and, you know, both have their masters; one runs triathlons all the time. Or my grandmother, who was a nurse during the second World War. Women of that generation, they had to be everything. They were going out into the workforce and still had to be caretakers.
