"I remember dad used to make me rehearse the lines and then we would go on the sets and after seeing the camera, I would forget all my lines. I used to not do anything and come back home. This lasted for two years, but my father did not give up and took me to the sets again. It took me a while to get comfortable with the camera and the environment. I don't blame myself for that and neither did my father because I was very young and had not seen the environment of the sets, everything was new."

I've only received positive reviews."
