Featured Animal Action

As Helen (Kathy Bates) sits on a chair, she holds a beagle puppy on her lap and pets it. This scene was filmed on a secured set. Cast and crew members were introduced to the dog and instructed on its proper handling. A trainer handed the puppy to the actress right before filming began and stood just off-camera during this mild action.
