I have one brother and one sister. I’m the oldest. We lived in an apartment across the street from where they used to film ‘Hill Street Blues.’ They’d come and stay for a week or two and take outside shots to use. I walked right in front of the cameras one day when they were filming. I was coming home from school, and I didn’t have any idea they were filming. All I heard was, ‘Cut!’ Somebody said, ‘We got to start over, because somebody got in the way.’
