Finding Alice: How did the cast and crew work after the lockdown?

Rosie, who also worked on The Durrell’s, announced that strict measures were in place after the lockdown.

She told Entertainment Daily exclusively, “We started filming again a few months after the lockdown ended, which gave us time to make sure we were used to the new measures.

“I am very happy to say that we were very proud to work under these conditions.

Our entire crew embraced wearing masks

“We were extremely lucky to still be able to work.”

Rosie also said, “Fortunately, there are certain people on the shop floor. You are responsible for policies and conditions that we all adhere to. “

And while wearing a face mask can be a little irritating, the beauty professional asked to be different.
