Runners are the lowest of the low in film units. They’re paid very, very minimal wages – probably below the national average. And runners are now being asked to drive actors about, as well as their runner duties. It’s kind of the same as taking advantage of nurses – it’s appalling.
Charles Dance

Nicholas D’Agosto
I still believe that Mercedes and Ferrari are the two strongest power units but then Honda is a lot stronger than they get credit for I think.
