If you could trade places with one person for the day, who would it be?
My mom or dad. They’re retired and do a lot of traveling!
What’s the first thing you notice about people?
How friendly and open they are.
One thing you can’t live without:
Great TV shows! I enjoy binge-watching shows like Sherlock, The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones.
Favourite movie quote:
[Royal motions to Pagoda]
Royal: He saved my life, you know. Thirty years ago. I was knifed at a bazaar in Calcutta, and he carried me to the hospital on his back.
Ari: Who stabbed you?
[Royal motions to Pagoda again]
Royal: He did. There was a price on my head, and he was a hired assassin.
- The Royal Tenenbaums (2001)
