While Emily Carey expressed her feelings about the premiere and says she is having a mixture of feelings, “It’s like a weird mix of feelings. There is so much joy and pride in watching something beautiful come out. But at the same time it’s so sad that it’s over and it’s releasing and we’re not shooting anymore. And I’m petrified so I will just hibernate in my flat and pretending it’s not happened.”
