The cast and crew were living in Paris during the duration of filming and had their own experience and anecdotes.
There was also some footage shot in Chicago for the midwestern elements of the story – the place Emily comes from and calls home.
Collins also served as a producer on the series and helped out with the locations and costumes on the series, alongside Star and the other exectuives.
She said: “I was encouraged to share some of my real experiences I was having living in Paris, and incorporate them into the lived experiences of Emily.
“This was the most amazing education to receive and I know I will take what I learned with me on all my future projects.”
Emily in Paris will be released on Netflix tomorrow
