“I always look forward to working with Terry. You feel his dedication and intelligence immediately and his ideas, whether it’s script analysis or scene work, consistently challenge and inspire me. He has an uncanny ability to uncover the truth in any moment, and, even more importantly, he’s able to articulate that to you in a clear and precise way. His energy is warm and encouraging and I know my work is more connected and grounded due to him.”
