Huge congrats to the 13 REASONS WHY pros on a well deserved Artios Award nomimation from the Casting Society of America. However they cast such perfect actors who are also incredible people, I'm eternally grateful. (Other nominated shows: The Crown, The Handmaid's Tale, This Is Us, Stranger Things, Westworld.)
Cyrus, Marlee, and Jessica have been wonderful hosts at The Alyeska Hotel in Alaska. After I checked in and was asked "What brings you to Alaska?" we had a great conversation about books...and books made into Netflix series. I left them a pre-release copy of PIPER. And the next day, Jessica was in the middle of reading it a second time! (Hearing something like that will always relieve some of the pre-publication jitters.)
