We had a great therapist who talked to the cast and crew before and during filming and was available at all times. Whenever there were children on the set [Sarah] said, ‘As soon as one of you isn’t having a good time, raise your hand and we’ll stop and find out.’ There were just a lot of crash barriers, which felt very natural.”
