“I met Michael on the first day of rehearsal, and I was stunned - even though, obviously, I knew his image very well - at how incredibly sweet and how modest and how innocent he was. And fragile too. In person you felt he was almost breakable. But then this thing happened when he would start to work: your heart would beat faster, and the hair on your arms and the back of your neck would stick up as he literally took your breath away. I think he was the most electrifying performer I’ve ever seen." 

— Anjelica Huston, speaking about her first meeting with Michael on the
set of ‘Captain Eo’
