I had such a blast last night at the Horror Hotel season 2 premiere! Last night was great and everything was perfect. I couldn’t have wished for a better screening. I’m not sure I could ever express enough gratitude to everyone who came out to see my show. I only ever wanted to just be a part of making films because I love movies and TV so much. It’s even better when others can enjoy watching it.

To my beautiful actors, you guys are the faces of Horror Hotel. You do something I could never do (trust me, I’ve tried and it was pretty dreadful). It’s no surprise that the number one thing I hear is how great the cast is. It means the World to me how much you guys support us!

To the crew, it takes a village to make a show like this (over 100 people just for Horror Hotel). I literally can’t do it by myself and I am so fortunate to have the most talented people I know helping me.

Of course, as many of you know, my parents are a huge driving force behind the show. Any success I’ve seen has been because of my Mom’s management of the series and I’d have nothing to film if my Dad didn’t write brilliant stories.

To our wonderful fans, you guys keep us doing what we do. I’m so grateful that anyone wants to watch my show at all. Because you guys keep watching, we get to continue making this wonderful series. Thank you all!
