Görg on what she’d have done differently if she could have gone back

“You know what I would’ve done? I would’ve taken more photos. I would’ve taken more photos with all the different people I worked with. Now I take photos with everyone, but when I was with The Jacksons, I should’ve taken photos. When I was with Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves, I should’ve taken photos. Now I take more photos.” —from a 2016 interview with Pop Geeks
