Ferrell was captured on video recruiting student volunteers at Kennesaw State University on Friday to join the Georgia Democrat’s campaign.

Earlier this month, Paulin-Ferrell spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the couple’s decision to campaign for the Democrat.

"We keep asking ourselves, how can we help? What can we do locally being in California? Should we be knocking on doors?" Paulin-Ferrell told the publication. "So we’re going to go knock on doors for Stacey Abrams. You never know in Hollywood if it helps or hurts but we’re trying get out the vote and drive people to the polls."

When she was pressed on how she and her husband planned to use their money to support candidates who their issues align with, Paulin-Ferrell said that she is “on ActBlue all the time donating and maxing out.”

“If there are candidates that I feel really strongly about that are fighting the good fight, whether it be about gun control or the [Brett KavanaughBrett Michael KavanaughFederalist Society welcomes Kavanaugh with standing ovation Amy Schumer cancels Dallas show, hospitalized due to nausea The paradox of the left’s feminist movement MORE] vote, we are there,” she continued. “We want to be active.”

Paulin-Ferrell also added that her husband had recently had meetings with New Jersey Sen.

"It's a critical election coming up and you have to care about it and get young people to care in order to use their power of voting,” she explained. “That's what it comes down to."
