“Working with Amy was simply incredible. It was a joy to be surrounded by her infectious presence every day,” Violet told us. “I am so inspired by her as a person and as an actor, so it was really a dream come true. I never could have hoped for a better director, confidant, and friend. She is joyous, kind and seeks to make the people around her feel safe and loved.”

“I think Amy took me under her wing in some ways, and I felt so comfortable with her and the other directors, Ryan McFaul, Kevin Kane, and Daniel Powell,” she added. “It was such a blessing, and I’m so glad to have them all in my life. I have learned so, so much from Amy and the cast and crew. It’s been a beautiful journey alongside Amy, and I am so grateful for the ride.”
