|“||I feel like it's paralleled my own evolution in the sense that this role opened up a whole new world of opportunities and was quite a challenge. It's been a blast though! Caroline became such a strong character this year and yet she's still vulnerable and makes mistakes. But she always picks herself up. I've adored the woman she's become this season.||”|
