“I had to go through a grieving period because I love that character so much,” Wood told Variety. “And I’ve been on such a journey with her. And it’s affected my own life and changed me as a person. So she’ll always hold a space close to my heart. And again, who knows what they’ve got up their sleeves, but it will be interesting to come back and play yet another character. If that’s where we end up going!”
Of what could happen in Season 4, she added: “Tell me! Look, people always ask me, thinking I know. And I always say, ‘I know as much as you do.’ I have no idea what season 4 will be like yet.”
