Welcome @ElizabethLudlow & @Riz_Manji! I’ve been working with these 2 this week & they’ve been killing it. FUN FACT: Elizabeth was in GOTG Vol 2 but she was an alien so I didn’t recognize her when she auditioned – I didn’t know we had worked together until I cast her a 2nd time! https://t.co/TVMRf2ut8V pic.twitter.com/rseKDEnDp0
