Apart from that scene, the couple explained that they don’t rehearse together. Faith admitted that they have made it a point not to work on their scenes together until they are actually on set. This is because they don’t want the scenes to come across as too rehearsed. Faith added, “It’s important that we react to one another naturally as characters, not as husband and wife.”

Meanwhile, Faith’s husband, Tim, said he loves working with his wife, even if it does mean they had to rehearse separately. In a separate interview, the actor said he cannot imagine spending five months apart while filming the series. He said as they are working six days a week, he couldn’t imagine Faith not being there with him.
