But it became necessary so that I could be aware of some of the nuances in the direction, in the story – not so much so that it informed my performance, but that it shined light on moments in which its relevant, and when clues are left, for the audience,” said Jeffrey.

And that way, Ford will be able to keep an eye on the board. Only time will tell.
