“Like any other person present on this planet, I also got inclined towards Allison, but her actions left me doubtful about her friendly and down to earth nature,”Scanlon further added. “I am really grateful to her for giving the character of Donna a new life. But its the matter of fact that the audiences wants some twist to the story, if we would portray the character the mother’s character in a way that she just hope to be her children back together in one home, then this would be a simple story and I’m afraid audience won’t like it”.
She said “I feel that I am really good when it comes to hard comedy. People who aren’t perfect and when eventually their actions ends up breaking someone’s heart. This family is great to watch on screen as they go on to fight together and yet in the end everything seems to satisfying”.
