Everybody that’s a part of the process is there for a reason; like the hair people, like the wardrobe, the set design. They just put you in this world and I really felt like I was Bobby once I put the hair on. Once I put the teeth in. I don’t really have a gap, a lot of people be disappointed about that…But once you have all this stuff on, it’s a different energy you feel. And all this studying I’ve been doing, kike, I really, really became Bobby.
