Nominated for 19 Academy Awards and winner of three, Meryl Streep is widely regarded as one of the greatest film actors of all time. Seemlessly working between Hollywood, theater and TV miniseries, Streep is lauded for her transformative character portrayals and uncanny mastery of accents and languages. She is revered off-screen as well as a champion of civil liberties, and in particular, of gender equality in the film industries and the greater society at large. Streep recently funded The Writer’s Lab, an initiative that offers script development for female screenwriters over 40. Taking time away from her duties as Berlinale Jury President, she joins Talents to discuss her career, her collaborations with directors and how she creates strong relations to the characters she portrays.
