What impressed you the most about the Iron Man 2 set?

Lots of cameras, and cool equipment! I got to see where Iron Man will fly. Everyone was very nice to me too.

I read comic books with my dad and I knew about Iron man so I was very excited when my mom told me I was going to get to be in a movie with Iron man.

What about the actors who played the roles of your parents?

I only got to work with the man who played my dad [John Slattery] and he was very nice to me. I never got to meet my [movie] mom on set.
