πŸŽ₯ 🎭 🎬 I'm excited  to offer you this long-awaited interview with British actress, Rebecca Root! Known for her versatility and spectacular presence, Rebecca's life and work has always profoundly moved and inspired me and, up until recording this interview, she had no idea :) 

Her acting careers spans over decades in a wide variety of roles in theatre, movies & TV. You may have seen her perform in The Queen's Gambit, The Sisters Brothers, The Danish Girl, The Romanoffs & Boy Meets Girl. This summer, she plays Quince at Shakespeare's iconic theatre Globe in A Midsummer Night's Dream.

We discuss the importance of connecting to our true self and bringing forth our unique voice in everything Life calls us to do.  I'm grateful for this moment of connection allowing me  to celebrate her contribution to a more just, diverse and inclusive world. Join us as Rebecca shares her inspiring journey!
