"Whitney delivered a great performance when I was on set with her. A fantastic combination of personality and a professional demeanor were a given for a talent like her, but what really made her stand out was her ability to deliver genuine emotion while receiving a good amount of pressure from her director. We were running out of time, the director needed brilliance now and she stepped up to the plate with out faking it. She was in the moment which at least for me is a what makes a good actor." - John Freeman, Director of Photography
