April joins Georgie on the podcast to chat more about how she came to get that job, dealing with intimate scenes without the presence of Intimacy Coordinators and how she navigated life after her time on the series. They also discuss the industry in general, April's other acting credits, side jobs and what she's watching on television at the moment.
