Sanchez hit the red carpet at Sunday’s TCAs in Beverly Hills, California, clearly expecting.
“I am playing a woman who is pretty detached from the thing that’s growing inside her, and I couldn’t be more excited about my pregnancy,” Sanchez, 37, told reporters of her role in Kingdom. “So when I slip into Lisa, I’m at odds with this thing down here.”
Sanchez also said that separating her character’s feelings toward motherhood from her own while filming has been a challenge.
“I think that [Lisa] at certain points really questions her decision to keep it, which couldn’t be further from my own life,” she said. “So it’s a weird, strange, strange thing, especially when he kicks during a scene, you have to go on as if this thing didn’t just move inside your body. So it’s bizarre.”
The couple, who have costarred in several projects, including The Purge: Anarchy, were married in December 2012 in Napa, California following a year-long engagement.
