Asked how she will feel at the end of filming, Eva said: "I can't - you're going to make me cry already.
"I can't even think about it. I mean, every episode that we're shooting now is a little sad, because we're like, 'Oh, another scene of all of us in the woods, another scene of all of us playing poker.' It's all emotional - every episode is emotional for all of us."
