I read that early on you were consulting with a psychiatrist to better understand Elliot. Are you still in contact with her?
I never wanted to let her down. She talked to me so often about shows that really take a few too many liberties in their depiction of illness—mental illness—and their depictions of psychologists and psychiatrists as well. I really made an effort, as did [show-runner] Sam [Esmail] and the writers, to just try to tell that relationship as authentically as possible. Or as appropriately. And that’s the standard we set for the entire show.
