Remembering her audition day and her role as Maya, the actress said:

"I remember the audition. The trains were late that day, and in New York City, if those trains are late, it's a wrap. And so I got to my audition literally right before, and I had my whole FBI gear that I was going to wear. I ended up having to go in the room in my street clothes."

She continued:

"When I got that call a month later, I was shocked. I was shocked, but Jason [Bateman] and Chris [Mundy], the showrunner, and a couple of other people that were some directors that season — they were just like the minute the camera came on they said, 'There she is.'
