Cody Rowlet 1

I was the first person he made-up for the show.  He was a great guy.  Very precise and focused.  Great talent.

What is the atmosphere like on the set of such a serious, dramatic show?

A lot of hurry-up and wait..  they are a very focused crew.

Do you have any interesting or funny stories from your time on the set?

Not really.  It was always miserably hot.  I wouldn't go back.  Ha
