“I came out of college and kind of stepped right into this, and sometimes I’m like, how did that even happen?” she told The Sunday Telegraph. “How did I get so lucky? How was it so easy?”

“I gained a whole new family when I joined this show,” she added. “I knew that I was going to get along with these people and they were going to be my co-stars, but I didn’t know they were going to be my best friends.”

We’re not sure how it happened, Camila, but we’re glad it did!
