She told ComicBook.com: ‘You know, I got into this project on The Stand because of another true, die-hard nerd, which is Josh Boone, who connected all of us on this project as he was adapting the book for Stephen.’
She told Access about the miniseries on Monday that the King adaptation has a special relevance at the end of a year that brought about massive change amid the coronavirus pandemic.
‘It’s interesting and ironic and if you think about some of the topics and discussions that we set out to have in this, through our characters, as they struggle to adapt to then-incredibly different and trying circumstances that are beyond any of their control,’ she said.
The Stand is set to premiere on Thursday on CBS All Access.
