Acting is kind of an insane thing to put yourself through - tricking yourself into feeling intense emotions, then legitimately feeling them, then feeling like you've been hit by a truck when it's all over. Maybe the weirder thing is that I enjoy it?
I can say now that it's over that I was incredibly nervous about taking such a larger role in Just Cuddle. All the actors involved in the series had knocked it out of the park. During it, Winter had transformed into some type of movie star. I didn't want to ruin this amazing thing by injecting myself into it.
I've always considered my mom to be one of my best friends. I feel a twinge of embarrassment in that admission. Maybe it's because of the dreaded "Mama's Boy" label or the unfortunate association with Norman Bates. Your mom is the one person who's supposed to love and accept you no matter what, so if she's your best friend it must be because no one else can stand the sight of you, right? Maybe. But if you know my mom, you also know she's pretty fucking cool.
