In an interview with “On The Red Carpet,” Dawson marveled at the scope of the new series and what it took to make the show as an actor, including learning martial arts in her forties.

“All the technology that’s been created so that we can do storytelling like this, it’s magical,” Dawson said. “And it’s been such an incredible journey and to still be challenged and pushed is a dream.”
