Connor: Being an actor, after you do it for a long time, becomes normal. You get experienced and are able to get into character and memorize your lines easier. And you love doing it. So the more you do it, the easier it gets, and the more fun it becomes.

Connor: It was a lot of fun, actually. Russell was always allowing us to throw punches at him and jump on him and stuff. And we had a lot of fun with him. And Renee was really nice too. Both of them were always playing with us. And Renee always wanted to give the kids hugs - she's really such a nice person.
