Colin: (on the movie "In My Father's Den") The whole thing, it was such a good script and great people to work with. For the audition, I had three scenes to learn and I was like, 'Oh my god this character!'
Colin: (on his experience making the movie "In My Father's Den") Being directed by Brad [McGann] was amazing. It really brought home what I valued about acting, the simple authentic things.
