“She's so professional and lovely to work with, and she's just charming and joyful and happy and positive on set. And it creates the conditions for beautiful scenes to happen.
returns Heughan: “Pre is someone I've admired for a long time. … I knew from day one, I mean, there was some anticipation. I was nervous about how it would go and as soon as we started working , we just realized we have the same ethos, and the same sense of humor I guess.
Chopra Jonas said, “I'm more fun, but sure.”
“Kind of fun, and competitive too,” laughs Heughan.

“Your life is a rom-com,” Heughan tells Chopra Jonas.

Heughan also reminds his co-star of how he and Jonas first met.
“Slipped in my DMs,” she says. “So there's the rom-com.”
“And I'm trying to write my life like a romantic-comedy,” Heughan declared. “I'm going to DM everyone.”
