Go back behind stage or the dressing room and just wait.” Because we were deathly afraid that someone would come in and recognize us, because you know, in Houston it’s a very small pool of actors and actresses.

Every actress, young actress coming up takes a stab at it at some point or another because I think that there is a sort of fascination with that life.

But I think what happens when a lot of material that is out there is that it has several different perspectives that are not necessarily the perspective of the women, and I’m, even when I’m writing a script, even with subject matter that I know really well like this because me and Junie lived it, I always still take it, that I’m going to do research.
