First call to meet on set was at 6AM, but I was so nervous I ended up showing up to the set without having had a wink of sleep."
In regards to his first experience acting, he shared, "We shot for a total of 6 days; at first I felt awkward and out of place, but now I feel as if acting was a good memory and lesson."

I believe being a banker is a great occupation."
