Bailey : The first time I saw Zoe Saldana on the set, I screamed.
Jamie Platters : Did you hide something?
Bailey : No, Duane, who plays Rodxo, dragged me into his dressing room because he didn’t want to make a fool of me. We spied her from the dressing room window and saw her… awkward. I’m also a huge Marvel fan. It was an intense moment for me. Then, Kate Winslet plays my mother. It was creepy too! But everyone is incredibly nice.

What was your reaction when you first saw Avatar: The Way of the Water on the big screen in 3D?
Bailey Pass : It is very moving. I was 6 years old when the first Avatar came out.

I was so young when it came out, it’s true, I didn’t understand. When I saw Avatar: The Way of the Water, I understood how grandiose, emotional and important these films are.
“James Cameron is incredibly cooperative”
How is James Cameron as a director? Is it intense, emotional, or creepy?
Jamie: It’s not scary … well, it depends if it’s after or before lunch! But that’s all you say. He is a versatile director. He chooses more things than a normal director. He had to lead a team of technicians and manage the extraordinary creative process of this saga.
Bailey: James Cameron is incredibly cooperative. A person who has produced such important films will always have a very precise idea of what he expects from you, but he will listen to you. He may be a director but he knows that we love our characters as much as he does. He encourages us to share our ideas.
Jamie : I can tell he likes hockey jerseys. He continues to wear it on set.
Bailey : I felt that I only had two T-shirts during the long months of shooting (laughs). He is very disciplined and attentive. He wakes up early in the morning, hits the gym, and then starts his 12-hour shift.
Jamie : James Cameron and Stephen Long practiced kickboxing together every morning.
