Cohl also admits that Tierney’s injury and departure made an impact on the entire cast and crew. “It definitely had an effect on all of us. You always feel for anyone who’s injured, especially Chris, who’s such a great guy,” he says. “You have to steel yourself and understand what we’re doing and move forward.”
