She has started to get wet in this acting game and there is only room for improvement and she has my full support. “
He continues: “ Mary is not at all ordinary, she is more real. This is our royalty, no matter what others think of her, Mary is our royalty and we won’t let anyone tarnish this mark. She’s bringing it this season – I just wish she would hug her kids [laughs] but in the job she does she can’t be gentle at all, you have to be tough in love all around. array and she kills him. “
