Amanda shares with Cosmpolitan, “What breaks my heart about her is something I can totally relate to, as a woman and as an actor in this business, is just the need to be liked.

Fuller starts getting sympathetic towards her character as she continues, “We all need companionship and, I think, she’s ultimately alone. And that’s what maybe drives it the most. Just thinking about it more makes me so sad!

Amanda is hoping viewers start to see the good side to Badison.  “I know she’s not the most likable character and she stirs shit up, but I really do think she’s got a good heart and I hope that they can see that,” says Amanda.
