Reese on Deacon,
“He wants to be a pizza delivery boy,” says Reese. “Not that there is anything wrong with that but it’s hard to see how it could be a career as such. My daughter wants to be a scientist but they are both at the stage where it changes from one week to the next.
“Neither has said they want to be actors but you never know.””
