“Nicole and O.J. had a hot love affair. They would fight and then get back together again, while she hid everything to protect him,” she said. “What I saw in the series, between Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgård's characters, was the perfect depiction of what an abused woman goes through. I saw my sister in that relationship.”
