Roma Downey: My return to the acting life
Then, just as we were about to "roll camera," I put my hand up (as if I were back at convent school with the nuns), and asked with all sincerity where my apple was? Needless to say, the crew roared with laughter and shouted to me: "You're standing on it, love!"
Of course, the box was nicknamed an apple box! I have since learned there is also a "half apple" and even a "pancake" if you just need just a little extra height.
Believe me, over the years I have stood on all of them My father used to say I was hiding behind the door when the long legs were being given out. I have spent much of my career standing on an apple box.
And it was no different in Vancouver, with the 6'-4" John Schneider opposite me. At least after all these years, I finally knew what they are talking about when they called for an apple box!
