“It’s been really funny, the more I spend time with [Claire] and the more I’m working. I see so many similarities between us but she’s much more courageous. She’s a very strong, strong character and I think playing that role has given me a lot of strength. I’m embarking on the biggest job of my career to date. It’s been a really big responsibility. The first six episodes are told solely through my point of view so it’s a huge workload. I think she’s really strong-willed, a strong woman, tenacious. I think in a strange way playing her has given me a lot of that strength.”

Interesting that she says it’s told from her point of view in the first six episodes. The sneak peek clip and Tobias saying that you see what’s happening with Frank in episode 8 seems to suggest that they are moving away from the first person narrative of the show.
I like this.
