    With pleasure. An actor is talking about the director is gonna direct him. Just his impressions on the persona: “Within five minutes of talking to Marco, I could tell that he was not interested in the sensational or exploitative aspects of the story, and that he saw the film within a larger context. He clearly had an aversion to clichés and, on a personal level, he seemed very open, vulnerable and giving. Plus he had a great sense of humor, which always helps. The first impression proved to be accurate during the filming process.”

    Re: to be a giving person

    In general, a giving person is one who thinks of others before he thinks of himself. He doesn't necessarily give things of monetary value, he gives of himself. He'll stop by the home of a friend who is recovering from surgery and vacuum their house and do their dishes. That sort of thing.
