8:36 am
you put it we know who did it we need to know why. so without spoilg it you can take me at all in that direction as to what us kaz her to go from this day at the beach to sitting in that interrogation room? >> right. so what i can say is that we're tracking a story through the present and we're tracking a story through the past. so we're going to delve into a lot of her trisry and family's history and the experiences that she's had as a younger person and how that life kind of experience can bring you up to one point where you make a decision in your life that changes, you know, your whole existence. >> i was reading an interview you did i think was with marie clair or something and you said sometimes in real life i have trouble standing up for myself and exploring this character sort of made you explore that part of you. that made me like you more knowing that you -- that sometimes have you trouble. >> well thank you. >> she was so so on you before that. >> but that just pushed me over the edge. there's something about t
