So I was doing all this and I said, ‘We have to get back to the ship!’ And she’d say, ‘Bio, bloop, bloop, beep bloop.’ I couldn’t stop laughing, I found it really funny, and I felt really bad, because she was trying so hard to be a convincing android or a drone or whatever they were called. Yes, I obviously didn’t get the part. That was not my best moment, “he said.
