Personal Quote:

The Cannes screening was one of the more enjoyable screenings I'll probably ever have. And then the reaction of everyone after, that'll be hard to beat because I was so proud that Robert was proud. I know that sounds weird, but that really is what you want, you want your actor to be proud of the work they've done. He was taking such a chance on me, especially committing before I had any momentum.... See more »
