Filming about a Donkey

In this film I get to be layered in family- my own small family with my handsome husband Paul and our baby on the way. I am also the baby of my family of origin, the Owens, all of whome I worry over far too much.  It's actually pretty delightful playing a pregnant lady, fun to alter my physicality on all fronts and to think about the hormones rushing through me. Annie somehow manages to straddle being the character both closest and furthest in mindset to my own person I have had the chance to play. Christina Raia is slaying as our keenly focused, utterly competent director, and the team she has built around her really function much like a dream family - with everyone pitching in to make sure things get done regardless of their "title" on set. Each day is a pleasure, can't get enough!
