I had been working a lot and a vacation seemed important until I met Rosalyn and then there was nothing in the world I wanted to do more and I realized this would be more refreshing than an actual vacation. David sent me the script, and then we just started creating her piece by piece. He has this amazing contagious energy that makes me feel like, whatever he asks, you go for it. Even the kissing scene with Amy. I said, ‘David, no.’ He says, ‘trust me, it will work.’ No, David. Even after we did it I thought, no way. And then I see it, and it absolutely does work. I can’t explain [the dynamic between us], but his incredible fire just pushes you to do things you didn’t know you were capable of.
