Richard L. Evans

I had these kind of unrealistic expectations that were fueled by romantic comedies, and it has both helped me and hurt me in many ways. It helped me because, in general, they've made me hopeful.

The people that live in these districts, they don't want to watch it. They don't want to see their children die or killing other people.
