Interestingly, the Maestro director recalled that his connection with Lea didn’t develop for a few months after she was born, confessing that he didn’t initially relate when other parents would say they’d “die in a second” for their child.

Talking about their close bond today, Bradley said that he’s constantly in awe of Lea’s “ability to articulate her feelings” at such a young age.
