"He's just the most beautiful dog," she said. "He comes on set and in the first season, my boy was quite young at the time, we would go on walks with the dog and it was quite amazing because he's huge and my little boy was tiny at the time and they'd sort of waddle around together." 

"It was lovely and I love that. I love having animals on set, I think it calms everything down," she added.

The Witcher star also spoke about how creator Tony Schumacher used his own experiences as a police officer to write the show. She said: "Tony Schumacher, who has created the show, was a first responder and has spoken openly about dealing with those pressures and how they affected him and his mental health and his life.
