You’ve come from an accounting and marketing background. I’d like to know how you leapt from those professions, and went into to the acting field? Enzo: Let me say this. They are not unrelated. Because the entertainment business is a business. Once you truly understand the dynamics of how the business works –the struggle behind it is building a businesses from scratch. I think I was very blessed because the businesses skills I acquired deeply helped me with my producing and acting career. When you are an actor, you are becoming a product you need to sell.
