Yeah, this is my first one. For me, I was just trying to act. I was doing all these things and (director) Carlos was like, “You’re not actually on film.” You actually have to get the voice right, which I felt was the greatest challenge. We just saw some of it for the first time and it blew me away. It’s got the wow factor.
