Dr. Perrow, a psychologist, in the episodes
Ave Machina (2×01)
Dr. Perrow is hired by one of the antagonists, Vincent Ingram (Enrico Colantoni) as his psychologist. She ends up becoming too involved in the Travelers programme with dire consequences.
Amanda was nervous during the first cast read-through because she had been given the tapes of the previous episodes and had fallen in love with the show. As a result, she was a huge fan by the time she got to meet the actors.
The episode “17 minutes” is the most difficult episode she has had to shoot so far. It involved people skydiving and some of these scenes were shot with professional skydivers, while others were shot on a studio green screen, with the actors and the cameras moving around them. Given that it was a time-loop episode, it was also tricky to shoot similar scenes in new, interesting ways. To top it all off, the weather kept switching between rainy and sunny.
The role of Dr. Perrow was specifically written with her in mind.
