I want to stay in the discovery of the character, not in the attitude of her or her life. I want to be completely subjective about her. I want to speak in her voice genuinely and not pump emotion into a moment or a line. For that to happen I need to just stay on the text. (more...)

It's the terror of the first day of school mixed with the joy of spring after a long winter. New beginnings, new friendships, new families, new life. (more...)
