"This season was the first season where I had to stop production," said Rodriguez, who detailed her past mental health battles with depression and suicidal thoughts with NBC's Kate Snow at the Kennedy Forum. "I had a really tumultuous season and I was unafraid for the first time to be like, 'I can't.'" She adds: "There was a point where I couldn't, I couldn't push through every single time anymore. And I'm one of those human beings, and I know either you're it or you know who they are, where I'm just like, ‘I'll handle it later. I'll deal with it later. I'll figure it out later. I just have to do this now.' All the while dealing with this, you know, your silent little dragon in your head."
