In an interview with the Observer, Zöe talked about her experience filming the series while revealing that her character, Bonnie Howard Carlson, was “originally written for a white person.”

Big Little Lies was primarily shot in the setting of Monterey, California, and Zöe said that filming in the location was “a little uncomfortable” at times.

“There were a few moments where I felt a little uncomfortable because it is such a white area,” she explained.

Zöe also said that she felt that way in Monterey because of “weird racist people in bars and things like that.”

“Being a woman of color and being an actor, and being told at that time that I wasn’t able to read because of the color of my skin, and the word ‘urban’ being thrown around like that, that was what was really hard about that moment,” she said.
