I'm ready right now and I don't want to come back tomorrow. I don't know what will happen tomorrow, but I know today I can get this job.

There have, of course, been a few difficulties with playing a cop. She's had to quickly learn the skills of the trade, and it was not easy.
She spoke about her first time working with as a "cop," "I had never held a gun or cuffed someone, so I felt really out of my body when I first started this job. I didn't expect that. I thought I'd be able to adapt easily, but it took me a while. One of my first days on set I was pointing a gun and someone walked by and my gut reaction was to use my hand to cover the barrel of the gun. So I've had to work a lot on physicality."

When did Will Estes realize he had "made it" in the industry? Well, it was quite a sweet story. He shared, "I have these moments that stand out for me that are just as big as booking the job.
