“Oh no, if I’m doing something that’s based on a book, then I’ll definitely read the book,” Sheen says. “I look for anything that will give a little clue or something, a little help, a little hint… just things like that. Like one word that Stephenie uses in the book will kind of tee off my imagination.”
