Um, but I don't know if it's a funny story, but I had a really great action work. I walked out to do my saber fight and I saw that the the young gentleman who was my stunt double didn't resemble me physically and he was smaller and he was many years younger and his shoulders slumped forward a little bit. And so I said to myself, there's no way that I I would believe as an audience that he would do this now a lot of times you can and I said I'm gonna do that saber fight. And I got a chance to work with a real wonderful artist named Lateef Crowder who is a uh karate expert and judo expert and a stunt guy. And we had we made beautiful music together during our saber fight. And I believe that when I watched All right, so how do people react to you in person?
