Laughing, the actress said she had the thought that she might be typecast at this early stage of her career. In fact, she had no idea that Allie was pregnant when she got the role. That reality was a surprise after the fact. She took the news in stride, even though she had never imagined that her character was facing a pregnancy dilemma. When they gave her the stomach padding that the character wears to simulate a pregnancy Arnold said she thought, “All right. Let’s do this.”
