How did you hear about the film Letters to God?
Jeffrey:        I heard about it just because it was an audition.  It wasn't 'til later I knew much about David (Nixon, the director) and Possibility Pictures.
 
Why did you get involved with the project?

Jeffrey:        To tell the truth, it was just a job at first.  But it became so much more with every step along the way.

Jeffrey on SetHow has the experience affected you?

Jeffrey:    It's pretty rare that an actor in my position gets to be involved in something so personally moving and gratifying.  I'm just a gun for hire, so to speak.  So, when I get the opportunity to tell such a delicate and inspired story, and make so many wonderful friends while doing it, it's really one in a million.  I thank God for the chance to make something so beautiful.

 Do you have a specific favorite moment from being part of this movie?

Jeffrey:        Too many to list.  I will say that often times, when I had to dig deep emotionally, I would recall a dear friend of mine who recently passed away, too soon gone, and she would help me get to it.  I miss her dearly and was grateful to have her "co-direct".

What else would you like to share from the heart?

Jeffrey:        Tanner & I were talking on set one day, and I tried to illustrate to him the importance of something like this.  Sure, a gig is a gig, but to be involved with a piece of art that will affect people and affect the world in a good, hopeful, loving way, well, that's rare.  I told Tanner, (or "Tiger", as I took to calling him,) that 30 years down the road he'll be able to look back on this experience with profound honor.  I know I do already.
