According to the actress, the biggest challenge has to be losing her last character to become a new character.

"In all honesty, it is about transiting from one character to another," she said.

"As an actor, you are always a character anyway. So, it is basically two things; losing yourself and losing the last character, and don't forget that in our industry you don't have the luxury of time, so you are going from one movie set to another and another.

So it's two things, losing yourself, losing the last character and becoming this character, then moving on with it."
