In Mary’s words…

Okay, what I remember from Tiger Warsaw was experiencing fully the wonderful entity that was Patrick Swayze. He was such a good guy. He was sogifted, and he was so funny and… he was such a renegade in so many ways. If something was going wrong on the set, or if actors weren’t being treated well, or something else, you didn’t have to do a thing. Patrick took care of everything. He was really, really, really a beautiful soul. I feel very lucky, because it’s just so sad that he’s gone. I just feel lucky that somewhere in my career I got to experience him.
