In terms of Cube I think he's very conscious of the technical aspect of the business whereas when you're just hired as an actor, you're not really secure in that part of your work and you're not really paying attention to where the camera. See more »

Trivia:

Nia's very first acting job was as an uncredited extra on the TV series Silver Spoons (1982) in which she had just one forgettable line of dialogue. See more »
