“She knows how to destroy, but does she know how to nurture, how to take care of something?”Reilly was curious. “Suddenly, we’re seeing her nurture and cook and sort of try out this aspect of herself that I think is really beautiful.”

“There’s something about Carter that pushes her buttons in a way that nothing ever has,”Reilly went on. “I don’t know that she feels she’s actually capable of [parenting him] or if she thinks she’d be any good at it. She’s not a Disney character.”
