Hannah Einbinder, who plays Ava, previously opened up about the show to Variety, saying: "In the beginning of shooting, I felt a great deal of imposter syndrome because I had never acted before. It is intimidating being with these actors who are such lifelong professionals.… I was like, I feel out of place, I feel wrong here, they should have gotten someone with more experience.

"But it came to the point where, I respect Jean so much, and I respect [Hacks creators] Paul, Lucia [Aniello], and Jen [Statsky] so much. If they say I’m doing a good job, and I respect them and their opinions, then I can choose to believe them. It’s made me feel a lot better.”
