Quote: "When you're a child actor, if you don't have a C average (in school), you lose your work permit, you're off the show, and I think they can sue you, because you are shutting down a television series. So anytime there was a major grading period, I have very vivid memories of just stomach-churning and tears and knowing that if I don't pass these tests... we were living hand-to-mouth." Former Arrested Development star Jason Bateman remembers the pressures he faced as a child actor.
