James Edward Becton
Mandy in The Dance
When did you know you wanted to be an actor?
I knew at an early age of my interest in the arts. My mother once told me, that I told her, that I wanted to be an actor thereby allowing me to be everything that I had ever wanted to be in life.
What attracted you to Re-Works: The Fabulous 80s?
I was invited to portray the role script unseen.
One guilty pleasure:
If you could get anyone to see the show, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
Helene Mirren b/c she is a fierce ass broad.
