On the red carpet for Inside Out 2, where she voices the character of Envy, Ayo Edebiri was asked by a Variety reporter about the emotion she felt as she stepped into the director's character. The actress replied, "Love probably... I love our cast; I love our crew. It's like the gift of my life to get to work with them. But then in the capacity as a director and getting to collaborate with everybody from a different vantage point, not just as an actor."
She added, "Seeing how they make their decisions, I was just so moved by how talented and hardworking everyone is. We make the show, we shoot in a short amount of time. We're in Chicago and everybody just puts in a 110 per cent into it. It just made me very grateful."
According to the series listing on IMDb, Ayo Edebiri will be directing the sixth episode of the third season which is titled Napkins. The actress told Vogue that The Bear's creator and writer Christopher Storer convinced her to direct an episode.

About the series The Bear

The award-winning series, created by Christopher Storer, features Jeremy Allen White as a talented young chef named Carmen Berzatto who works with his late brother's team to turn his sandwich shop into a fine dining establishment. The rest of the cast includes actors Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Lionel Boyce, Liza Colón-Zayas, Abby Elliott and Matty Matheson.
Another new teaser for the upcoming season shows The Bear employees dealing with the changes now that the restaurant is open. And of course, things are not smooth sailing from the get-go.
