‘I got in the wrong elevator at the wrong time,’ Anna later joked while at the photo and video studio for People and Entertainment Weekly at TIFF.

I got out. Some lovely Canadian firefighters had me crawl out the top of the hatch. But, yeah, it was, like, seven of us in an elevator just waiting to be rescued by firefighters. It was so absurd that it would happen on a film press tour that it just seemed so immediately comical,’ she added.

‘I couldn’t stop cracking jokes. Although, maybe that’s a defense mechanism. Come on, Anna. Do you know anything about yourself? I think that was probably a defense mechanism. Oh no, I’m not healthy!,’ she said.
