TCTP: Adam knows what snack to bring to any occasion. What's your go-to snack?
TCTP: Is there a missed opportunity in your life?
EH: Every time I walk past Margie’s Candies and don’t stop for ice cream.
TCTP: Max and Jenna lie about their relationship all in the name of love (or wanting to get away from it.) What do you think is worth lying for?
EH: I generally don’t like lying unless it’s for a good cause like gift giving.
TCTP: MISSED OPPORTUNITIES is a spin on classic romantic comedies. What's your favorite rom-com and why?
EH: Amélie, it’s quirky and weird in all the best ways.
TCTP: All four of our characters are just 20-somethings trying to live their lives and be adults. When do you most feel like you're adulting?
EH: Checking things off my to-do list.
