When the actress was asked about how she felt about a character that only stays on the screen for 30 seconds, she said,
"She feels very well rounded and thought out. They have a long bio and back story for Jan. When the crew comes together, it feels like we are back shooting our show. It’s like Jan comes to life every three months, and then we go our own way."
