Earlier this year in April, Emily talked to PEOPLE about her lockdown experience with her husband when she was welcoming the break from her busy schedules.

“I was coming off of doing two jobs at the same time — I was doing The Falcon and Winter Soldier and The Resident, sort of burning the candle at both ends,” Emily talked about her hectic time.

She continued, “So the beginning (of lockdown) was very welcome. I was like, ‘Okay, I actually get to just sleep for a bit,’ which was amazing. Just being able to enjoy the quiet, enjoy my husband and my dog, enjoy being home, things that I hadn’t had for a really long time. I did not take that for granted at all. I loved every second of it.”

Emily also said that she and Josh had gotten the chance to learn new things about each other over the past year, while appreciating those instances.

“I don’t think we’d ever spent that much time together ever in 10 years we’ve been together,” she revealed. “We definitely discovered what it’s like to just be together all the time, good and bad.”

“I tend to be a little bit more on the broody side, a little bit more pensive and I don’t know, more of the realist. He’s more of an idealist. It’s very nice to have that as a balance. I was very lucky to have such a positive person around all the time.” - Emily VanCamp
