"Emilio brings out the very best in you as an actor and as a human being. You know, I frankly can't think of a more proud moment than I'm having right now with his success with Bobby. He's finally realizing a dream," Martin says. "It has not been an easy journey, but he's never wavered and he's stayed focused and always true to Bobby Kennedy and himself. … Emilio, I cannot be prouder of you."
Martin says remembering Bobby Kennedy is important in light of today's events. "When Emilio decided to do a story about Bobby Kennedy, he was reawakening for his generation what I had experienced in the '60s in my generation," Martin says. "He was a great hope. The young people need to hear that voice again. And it's very powerful."
