Personal Quote:

"On my set, people have to respect the actor's process. I totally respect what actors do. I give them whatever time they need and I never scream out directions from the camera. I take the time to walk up to them and talk to them personally." (from "Gina Prince-Bythewood's Disappearing Acts" by Monice Mitchell, DGA Magazine, January 2001, 25:5, 51-53.)

Trivia:
