This is the real family, you know, talking about the cast and, like, really being unified. And I value that because you can feel that when they’re together.”

Sinclair also called Gen V a “labor of love” as the entire cast and crew poured their hearts and souls into the show. She added that the show contains “[our] blood, sweat and tears, lack of sleep, intense scenes, crazy action. I really hope that people love it, ’cos we loved making it.”
