Veteran actor Martin Sheen has worked with his son on projects before, but nothing has meant more to either of them than Bobby.
"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."
