Some are, but I've worked with many adult actors who are
nightmares to work with and aren't good with dialogue but I
sure wouldn't use those examples as a general statement
about adult actors.
I can late to this - I'm glad you have figured out how to make
the compromises needed - but wanted to add a second to Paul's
