“[They] were really lovely,” Howard said. “And yes, it’s an incredible group of people. I have so much respect for them. There’s so much frenzy surrounding them, and they’ve remained grounded, and their friendships are so genuine. I felt very lucky to work with such a good group of people.
“They love these books — all these actors,” Howard continued. “They’re fans themselves. It was a great energy on set — that people are so passionate about bringing these characters to life.”
