Invited to Tower On Wednesday, Caroline Dhavernas discussed her professional life and motherhood with Patrick Hurd.
When the actress played the lead role in the American series, she returned to a particularly busy period in her life Mary kills people, And this, in addition to being a new mother. She says how difficult the work-family balance is in this particular situation, but that everything went well, among other things, thanks to the goodwill of the series producers.
“I worked very fast. When my daughter was four months old, I did last season Mary kills people, But my producers are exceptional. They knew that I was a mom, that I was tired and that I was breastfeeding, so they built meaningful days for me, even though I was the main character, she agreed with Patrick.
If she was grateful to be able to benefit from a balanced schedule, the actress agreed that it would be too long. “It’s serious there! I took milk in the middle of the movie shooting. As soon as I had 15 minutes, I went to my dressing room and installed my breast pump hardware …”, Caroline added looking disappointed.
Thavernas continues a hilarious account of this particular time. She was filming in a church basement and when she could not find the electrical outlet to plug her breast pump, she hid behind a door and knelt down to plug in the said machine, after which she continued to work. So she was on her knees, in the church basement, almost in plain sight, pumping her milk between two scenes.
That is what we call a dedicated mother!
