What was it like to do Skateland and work with Ashley Greene?
FERNANDEZ: It was crazy to work with her. I learned a lot from her, too. She was so subtle, but when I watched her performance, it had such nuance and beautiful subtlety that I was so impressed. That was a movie that I would have killed for. I just knew that character and I knew that I had to make that film. It’s about a kid who’s out of high school, who’s complacent. He’s only complacent because he doesn’t believe in himself, and that’s exactly where I was at that age, at 19 or 20. It’s confusing and it’s confounding. You’re like, “Do I make this next step? Do I believe in myself?” Through this series of events, he’s forced to reexamine his life, take responsibility, move forward and find his place. Ashley was a fantastic friend to have on that set. I was just blown away by her performance. I love that movie and I hope that people get to see it.
