Diane Morasco: What are your days like on set?
Harold Perrineau: For me, my days are pretty quiet. I’m usually by myself, so that I can stay focused on the things that “Damon Pope” has to do. So there’s not much action for me until we get on set and start the work.
DM: How have you managed to stay in touch with family and friends?
HP: It’s hard to stay in touch with family and friends. A lot of the social media things have been really helpful, Twitter and Facebook have been helpful with keeping in touch with a large number of people in a short amount of time. And most of my immediate family I talk to on a regular basis on the telephone.
