“So naturally we wouldn’t be able to interact with the fans like we used to, taking pictures, selfies, signing autographs.
“Of course, I miss it but I think right now we’re going through a period where we’ve got to be patient and hopefully starting next year at some point we’ll see each other more often and things will hopefully be somewhere back to normal.
