One of the loveliest actresses I have ever worked with is my fellow Canadian Ellen Page. In person she is very small but her talent is huge! It was pretty funny to hear her drop the “F” Bomb when she flubbed
a line. (Once) “Whip It” was Drew Barrymore’s directorial debut. She is so down to earth and was a joy to work with. She hugged all of the actors individually at the end of the day’s shoot. I was thrilled to learn she had used one of my scenes in the trailer.
