"The audition tape was so strong that after a Skype call with Hilmar we cast her without meeting her in-person," writer Philippa Boyens said in a statement to IANS.

"Hera reminds me of Ingrid Bergman, a classic beauty and an old soul with a calmness about her-absolutely perfect for the role of Hester," Boyens added.

Director Christian Rivers also praised Hilmar.

"She was just perfect, relatively unknown, captivating, beautiful and fragile, and we knew we could put a scar on her," Rivers said.
