“Thank you for getting this role,” Sawa recently told E! New. “We got along pretty well in the short time I spent working on Casper. We are the same age and I ended up going to school with her while I was there. I worked a day or two, but I was there maybe two weeks. She remembered me and recommended me and I got on tape and got it. We hung out a lot during the shoot. “
