Our story is a 'once upon a time', but it's not a 'happy ever after'.
I grew up with a lot of fairy tales. And they had an essence of darkness to them.
So when it was my turn to start developing projects, I knew the writers I wanted to work with, and I had met every head of studio, every executive and a lot of producers. I started finding things, little crumbs off other people's tables that I would make my own.
To me, casting is all about finding a character within the actor off the screen as much as on the screen.
I mean, you know, sometimes, yeah, you wish for something and you don't get quite what you wish for. But you get something bigger and better.
