Sydney, you’ve been with the show since you were 9 years old. You are now 11. It’s a show that deals with very adult themes - frankly, candidly - and I think that’s… it’s strength. How did you discuss the show - you know, as a 9 year old talking to your mom or to your director - about what’s going on in the show and how you dealt with that?


I had the greatest vows ever and I can’t find them, so, here I am looking at you, and this is what I know. I have loved you since the moment I saw you. Loved you and feared you. Well, not you, but, this. I’ve been terrified to love this profoundly, but not anymore. For good and for bad, for great and for hard, for dreams and for the truth… behind the dreams, I am here. I am yours. Sam Swarek, I choose you. I promise to honor you and cherish you… and while I won’t obey you, per say, I will always hear you and I will keep loving one moment after another, one epiphany after at a time.
