When asked by Vulture Magazine how she relates to her character Sue, Eden said, “How much of myself has been infused into it. The discrepancy in age … I’ve always been four or five years older than this character. But since she started college, she sort of caught up to me. Twenty-one feels way less of an age gap than 13 to 17. I’ll do a scene or I’ll have this speech that means so much to me, and it’ll feel so personal. I’ve gotten better at acting. [Laughs.] I’ve seen the pilot again recently and I’m like, “Oh my god, I was so bad! I could’ve played that so much better!” It’s a good thing that I’ve learned so much and improved, but it continues year after year to become more personal. I used to eschew the whole “Sue is different than me” attitude, but now it’s like, I don’t know. She’s actually not that naïve. It’s this weird blurred line where Sue ends and Eden begins.”
