After landing the role, Ever spent eight months in Canada and Faroe Islands filming the movie.

“It’s something that I’m never ever going to forget,” the actress said, adding that there definitely on-set pranks. “We got to play a few pranks on [co-star] Jude Law which was like, oh my God!”

“We had a water gun fight with everyone at the end of main filming,” she added.

However, with being gone for so long, she admits she didn’t take the time to check in with friends and has been working on correcting that since the end of filming.

“I can be the person who gets caught up, and I don’t check in like I should be doing. I’ve definitely been trying to work on that,” Ever shared. “I’ve been trying to do everything I can to catch up with my friends while I’m here and not working, so that I keep these connections alive, because I love my friends.”
