Personal Quote:

I have to be involved in the entire project. I like to watch other people's scenes. I just couldn't come in and do my part.It would be too lonely for me. But..I have lots of opinions on how it's being shot, the lighting and everything. I'm being a nuisance to help the program. See more »
