Lily Gladstone

If you’ve seen Lily Gladstone’s films, you know the magnetism and depth she conveys onscreen. In all of Lily’s performances, she is able to bring a raw presence and incredible emotional honesty. It’s hard to keep your eyes off of her. She is exhilarating to watch. Something so singular about Lily is she is an extremely trained performer and an extremely prepared performer, but is able to perform with the honesty and rawness of a first-time performer. I was lucky enough to act with Lily this year on a series. What I got to see was not only her talent, incredible work ethic, and intellect on set, but also her thoughtfulness, kindness, deep empathy, and elegance outside of work. She is a star onscreen and a real light in the world off-screen.
