What was your initial response to the project?
When Ralph mentioned a photography project that he thought I would be great for, I was instantly intrigued. We followed up at one of my movie premiere parties and I was excited to hear more about the photography project. He asked if I would like to portray Henry Fonda, I gladly accepted and considered it an honor to portray such an iconic and legendary Hollywood actor.

What was the total experience of doing the photo shoot like for you?

It was an unforgettable experience. It was so much fun watching the films of Henry Fonda like “The Grapes of Wrath”, not only enjoying these timeless classics but also to mimic the mannerisms of Henry Fonda to incorporate into my portrayal. Henry has such defined features, I utilized the similarities I have with Henry while practicing other facial features to recapture the pose of Henry's images. Thanks to Ralph's stellar direction, I really feel I embodied the essence of Henry Fonda. Thank you for the incredible experience.
