“I remember auditioning for Richard Pryor & Gene Wilder’s movie“Another You”, and after my reading, the casting director said ‘You know you just read Richard Pryor’s character, so can you do me a big favor and step outside the room, take five minutes and look over the“Frankie”character'. I came back inside and nailed the read and got the part. Unfortunately, several weeks prior to the screening of the film, I received a call from the studio informing me that my scene was cut from the movie. Approximately Eight years later I booked my first television series!.......PERSEVERANCE!"
