A: Awesome. Antonio Banderas was really nice. Alan Cumming
was great. I could sit hours watching them and learn a
lot. Carla Gugino was extraordinary. Alexa Vega was awesome
to work with.

football. When we had a day out we would go tubing in
the river or go swimming.

my bed and share my room with my brother and everything.
