We got an hq video of these interviews:
We are reposting the same info we posted weeks ago in case you missed them: in the first clips the question is about getting into character. The second clip is about imitating other actors. At the end she talks about Shohreh Aghdashloo.

James S. A. Corey account (should be Ty Franck posting on that account) said that, in the scene between Anna and Amos in the last episode of The Expanse, the lines “because it needs to be done?” was Liz’s idea. 😀
Well… we all know she has an immense talent in everything that she does and having great ideas for her characters is not a surprise.
Her roles are all under her skin, you can see that by how deeply she goes into their heads and hearts. She knows them completely and at the same time she knows all the characters she has scenes with.
It’s a work that all the actors should do, but you don’t see it done often.
We have always liked that in Elizabeth. During interviews she’s always able to discuss also other actors’ roles. It’s necessary if you want to play someone accurately without missing any spot.
So that’s why it’s not a surprise she had the idea of “because it needs to be done?”, which implies that she understands Amos, since Anna understands him too.
Anyway this is what Ty Franck posted:
Now, to be fair, doing a callback to “because it needs to be done?” in this moment was in fact Elizabeth Mitchell’s idea. She has fantastic instincts.

io9: Can you name a couple of examples from past seasons when the show has added or changed material from the books?
Shankar: There’s a few examples, even going back as far as the pilot. Chrisjen Avasarela, she’s not in book one of the series. She actually comes into book two. Very early on, that decision was made to pull her into the original narrative to give Earth’s perspective of the events, so it’s not just Holden and Miller, which is the entire book one. Similarly, the character played by Elizabeth Mitchell, Anna Volovodov, she’s in book three but she’s not in book two at all. So because we knew that we would be bridging the end of book two and book three in the third season, we launched Anna at the beginning of season three—the backstory of Errinwright and her on Earth, that’s not in the books or the novellas. So we’re teeing up the narrative for future seasons of the show, but we’re creating new stuff that’s not in any of the published stuff. Ty and Daniel are right there with us, so we’ve talked a lot about how to bridge it. But I think people are going to be pretty psyched by what we do.

In the first clips the question is about getting into character (LOVE LOVE LOVE the answer about being different every time. It would be such an experience to see her live)
The second clip is about imitating other actors. At the end she’s talking about Shohreh Aghdashloo.
