"I'm no longer in pantsuits. I'm in denim and rock T-shirts. When we meet her, this other version of Regina, she's working in a bar. She's a bar owner. She's a little rough around the edges... This version feels really different. She's no longer in charge. We've always seen Regina in charge, and then she redeemed herself, but this Regina is something else. I'm having a blast playing her," the actress told Entertainment Weekly.
