According to MacDowell, reported the Daily Mail, she was offered the job based on her daughter’s recommendation, but admitted it was a tough role to play.

“It was interesting that my daughter suggested me for the role and at first, I thought, My God, does she see me like that? Of course, she doesn’t but it was a little intimidating!” MacDowell continued.

“It was so much fun but so challenging for me because I have never played a character like that before,” she added. “It was great to do something different and to show people what I am capable of.”
