TELL US ABOUT YOUR FILM “THE BRONZE. “The Bronze” is a comedy movie and I honestly feel like you have to hate life if you don’t laugh at it! It’s about Hope Ann Greggory, who is a washed up, bitter gymnast living in her glory days that gets stuck with training my character, Maggie Townsend, who is annoyingly innocent and naive. The film can be shockingly inappropriate and crass at times, but there is a really sad quality to Hope, which makes it touching to follow her journey.
HOW ARE YOU FEELING TODAY? I’m feeling pretty good! Today was my first day in a couple weeks where I didn’t really have much to do so I napped, which was really nice.
WHAT IS POPULAR? Being yourself! And Birkenstocks (to me anyways).
