Personal Quote:

I always beat the drum to hire as many locals as we can, but I don't need to tell them that. They know. From a casting perspective you can find a lot of talented people, but also it's very important that there are so many ethnicities represented in Toronto. You can actually cast a wide net and it looks like the real world. See more »
