Christina Ricci Reveals How "Hard" It Was Filming Yellowjackets Season 2 With a Newborn
Baby on board!
And we're not just referring to Shauna, the pregnant teen stranded in the Canadian wilderness in Yellowjackets. Before getting to work on season two of the hit Showtime series, Christina Ricci, who plays adult Misty, welcomed baby girl Cleo, 15 months, with husband Mark Hampton.
So, what was it like balancing Yellowjackets and her Netflix series Wednesday while raising a newborn?
"It has been really fun," Christina, who also shares son Freddie, 8, with ex James Heerdegen, exclusively told E! News. "I've been very busy, which is great and also hard with family and children and working all that out with a newborn. But it's great, it was really good."
And the Casper alum wasn't the only one juggling work with a little one. Melanie Lynskey, who plays adult Shauna, revealed that her husband Jason Ritter's upcoming appearance during season two presented its own set of challenges when it came to coordinating childcare for their 4-year-old daughter.
Everything We Know About Yellowjackets Season 2
"I didn't have any interaction with him, so it was difficult because we had to figure out childcare," Melanie shared. "I was like, 'Oh, I get some time off I guess.' And they said, 'No, you've got to go do all this publicity.' So then I had to bring my daughter with me cause he was working."
The Candy star added, "But he had a great time and I had a wonderful time having my daughter with me."
Despite some behind-the-scenes difficulties, new addition Lauren Ambrose—who joins the cast as adult Van—confirmed shooting season two was actually "magical."
"It was a very welcoming set and welcoming colleagues and it's really been a joy to join," the Servant star shared with E! News. "As a witness to what my fellow actors were doing, it's just really incredible. We're all given some very intense scenes to work on and just watching everybody's work has been incredible."
See how those scenes unfold when Yellowjackets season two premieres March 24 on Showtime before making its on-air debut March 26 at 9 p.m. EST.
