I arrived at Universal at 8:20am for my 9am calltime, meeting up with fellow actor
who was there shortly before me.
I did not have to deal with security concerned with my taking the non-pedestrian path onto the backlot parking, as someone else was using the pedestrian exit at which to re-enter, and I just walked through the door with him when security opened it.
