And I thought, 'You know, by the time this comes out my daughter will … understand it's my voice and what an incredible, cool point.  I was crying after I did the voiceover.A  nd it was the first thing I did after giving birth. And there's a scene where I pick the pod. And literally there were … tears falling.
