  • Quotes

    • Greg Pitts: (talking about one of his favorite moments on "Sons & Daughters"): The kids were truly amazing on the show. Because of their youth they tend to loose site of the whole "acting" element and find themselves just behaving in the moment; that's really the key to improvising in that type of format. And the kids were top notch. If you watch the faces of the adults you can usually tell when the kids improvised something brilliant. I can remember Nick (he played my son Danny)
      responding to me asking him if "I was made of steel?" and he shook his head and said "nope, you're made of BEER!" I almost lost it. That was all him.
