Tell us about one memorable experience behind-the-scenes during season one.
My birthday was during filming and my amazing cast sister and cousins throw a birthday party for me on set. They decorated and filled my trailer with balloons, organized a birthday lunch, and blasted me with water guns when we were wrapped. It was a very special day.
