How did you get involved with this movie?
I was an extra and got bumped up to a speaking role.
How much time did you pass on the set? What can you tell us about director Jon Favreau?
I was on the set for one day to film. Yes, I got to meet Jon and he was really nice to work for. He gave me an Iron Man 2 director's medal and I have it in a special place in my bedroom.
What impressed you the most about the Iron Man 2 set?
Lots of cameras, and cool equipment! I got to see where Iron Man will fly. Everyone was very nice to me too.
>Do you read comic books? Were you familiar with Iron Man before the movie?
I read comic books with my dad and I knew about Iron man so I was very excited when my mom told me I was going to get to be in a movie with Iron man.
What about the actors who played the roles of your parents?
I only got to work with the man who played my dad [John Slattery] and he was very nice to me. I never got to meet my [movie] mom on set.
