Margaret said: “You walk in the room and you have your mom playing your mom – that’s the biggest cheat in the world.
“That goes all the way from the inherent eye rolls that are built-in when your mom says something – and then also, later in the series, there’s a moment where Paula tells Alex that she’s proud of her.
“It felt like my mom was telling me that she was proud of me, and it was just one of the coolest things that’s ever happened to me.”
