I thought it was a great exercise in what we know and what we don’t know about people, about family, about his friends, how he flirted with the mystery of things, what was said, unshown, unknown, was a sort of the pull, the attraction of the piece, and it was so exciting, so when I got the chance to be a member of the crew, I thought yes.
