We were talking about offering the role to someone else and then I met Amber at a party and after a short period I realized that this movie was not going to happen if she said no to the role. She was absolutely 6 [the character]. When you watch the movie you will be able to tell hands down that she is 6. On set I just knew that she was going to add to whatever I had already written and just surprise me. That was one of the most exciting things about shooting this movie. Every take was different and she continually commanded the situation exactly as this character. There was a scene that we were shooting in New York and Max Barry was with us as she started this scene where she was pacing back and forth. Max was apprehensive at first but then Amber started spitting lines and Shiloh mumbled something that wasn’t in the script and she snapped back in character yelling, “Are you talking, because I’m right in the middle of a thought right now.” Everyone was silent as they kept doing the scene until I called cut. I looked back and Max Barry was crying and said, “This is the girl that I wrote, no matter what we give her to say, she is it.” That was such an amazing moment and I was so grateful that I had cast her.
