SundanceTV: How did your role on THE RED ROAD come about? What were you told about your character?

NG: I got a call from my agent about THE RED ROAD, and I put together an audition tape for the casting. The scenes that I got to audition with were the actual scenes that I did for that first episode I’m in, where I’m trying to break into the garage.
