The sentence is from the VOA Learning English Program:
“Well actually, the fame is there -- it just takes a different form. I mean, you know, you, you think of our show being prime time, but when I come out here and I meet people, they’re just as excited as I was during Batman days. So, it’s not that the people change. Maybe, you know, the, the perception is different, but it, honestly, nothing has changed – I’m the same person I was before I made the series that I am now.”
My understanding is : I am the same person that I was before I made the series and I am the same person that I am now. How to parse this sentence ?
