I won’t tell you which one, forget it. Anyway, people around me were very surprised that I decided to join such a project. But for me, it didn’t There was only one condition, very clear: I had to know the director and appreciate him a lot. He was funny, humble, had all the qualities you would expect from a director. And he had made this great film on cheerleaders a few years ago, Bring it on, which I had found really good. So I accepted, although I’m not really interested in these comic book adaptations as an actor, usually. “

On the other hand, I don’t think of repeating it a second time. to your previous question: I have often managed to avoid bad films in this industry. Fortunately, good artists are often good people. In any case, that’s the experience I had with my friends. “
