ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: We’ve talked a bit before about how Billie crafted her performance leading up to this scene in “Memento Mori.” Was there anything she did here that surprised you?
JOHN LOGAN: Billie always surprises me, and she’s one of the actors I really, really enjoy writing for because no matter what I think she’s going to do something staggering that I didn’t imagine. The character of Lily — first Brona, and then Lily — was all about, really, getting to that speech. And I always knew, from years ago, that it would be a slow burn of the character until that episode, when suddenly the grand plan was revealed. I talked to Billie about it at length and said, “Trust me, you’re going to love me or hate me for that speech.” But she just brought such passion to it, and such anger, and such outrage, that I couldn’t have been happier with the way it came out.
