"We have a lot of intimate scenes—that's where we live and breathe." The solution was relatively obvious: "testing, testing, testing, testing," Roberts says. "We had to figure out how to make sure we tested everybody a million times before they walked onto set and keep that bubble as safe as possible. That was our main focus—making sure everybody feels safe walking onto a set in the studios and locations."
