Rodriguez: […] But this is an important scene because this is where you find out Kate’s been killed. And your reaction— it was cool watching this because I was like ‘I want to see how my scene came out since I wasn’t there,’ make sure I don’t have to go reshoot anything. But you did such a terrific job. Madison: I really love your reaction in this scene, DJ. Rodriguez: Yeah, it’s so great. Madison: Because I think it’s so sad that you left Kate on the side of the road, or while you gave her money, and then— DJ: Yeah. Madison: Now she’s dead. DJ: He feels responsible.
