“We haven’t started. More time to get caught. What I don’t have. I have the carbohydrate load, but not the exercise part, ”the actress said, adding that they will start filming in Australia in early 2021.“ Obviously everything is weird because of the pandemic, which knows what’s going on. It will be exciting and I am interested to see if I can gain muscle.
