“I have definitely tried to soften it up a bit from the book’s immediate drawing of the role. For one can quickly put her in such a role as the half-absent mother who cannot figure out how to juggle motherhood and work. I would go for it in a slightly different way. She obviously has a demanding job, but I really tried to release the blame from her in relation to the daughter.
