Actress Lily-Rose Depp recently confirmed that the cast had a great relationship while filming the show in an interview with Grazia UK.

I was just saying this earlier in an interview, but it was so cool being on set every day and just looking around and being like, ‘My friends are so talented. This is so cool to be surrounded by so many incredibly talented people who are also just nice, and lovely, and funny.

— Lily-Rose Depp

Lily-Rose Depp also admitted that she was surprised to learn that she “[loves] dancing” after filming multiple dance scenes for the show.

I realized that I actually love dancing; it’s so much fun even if I am nowhere near, you know, Jennie-level at all.

But even though Lily-Rose Depp doesn’t have the background in dancing that Jennie, as an experienced idol, has, it was easy for the actress to see Jennie’s talent in dance.

But it was so cool to watch her work. She’s so talented; I’m so in awe of her. And watching her pick up the choreo like that and absolutely knock it out was so impressive.

And Lily-Rose Depp didn’t just admire Jennie for her dance ability, as the actress revealed just how “sweet” of a person Jennie actually is despite being a global superstar.

And she’s so sweet. And for somebody who lives the kind of life that she lives, she is so humble and kind and a real girl’s girl. I love her.

— Lily-Rose Depp

When asked whether the cast had karaoke sessions, Lily-Rose Depp admitted that while they hadn’t, she would bring up the idea in their group chat, showing that the casts’ friendship certainly extends outside the show.
