Its a dream to get to work off someone like her, especially with a character like mine that is very much the opposite in the sense that he is not expressive. One of the Things I loved about getting to work with Vera was we learned early on that our characters would eventually be paired up in some fashion. Given that Romero was so closed off and had his own turmoil and dark past, I enjoyed knowing that Norma eventually draw him out of his shell and bring his guard down. That was always fun to work with her on that, in those scenes.
