You actress Ambyr Childers has admitted that her character Candace's death had an "effect" on her – though in an unexpected way.

The second season of the Netflix psychological thriller included a shock twist that saw Candace killed off by Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti).

Recalling filming the scene, Childers told Entertainment Tonight: "I've never died onscreen before, so that was my first onscreen death, I believe, on television.

"It was weird, but it was more weird because it wasn't like a normal setting. We were in a storage unit, which is so eerie. Now when I go back to my storage unit that I have, I get so freaked out!

"I can't stand it. I'm always looking down the walkway. It's so creepy to me. It's terrifying. That part definitely had an effect on me; now I'm always like, 'Does anyone want to go to my storage unit with me? I'm too scared.'"

The actress also spoke of her reaction to the surprising twist, admitting: "Holy shit. I think it was such a good idea because no one sees it coming.

"What plays like such a beautiful, innocent, vulnerable person and then you see this dark side to her, it just shows you that everybody has their shadows. Candace really sees it. What do you do for Love [now]?

"It makes you question going into the third season. OK, is Love a murderer or did she really do it for love and is she now trying to protect him? That's the lingering question at the end of the second season, which is great."

You is available to watch on Netflix now, while season one is also available via Amazon and iTunes.
