Hey lovelies, I know you’ve been waiting for this.
The Questions & Answers with Liz is here!
Today she answered 10 of your questions and you’ll be blown away by her mind, her honesty, her soul and by the purity of her heart. Stay tuned for more!
I love her and her mind so deeply much!
Q: What was the most important thing you wanted to pass on when you became a mother?
Liz: Kindness, integrity and curiosity. Every time CJ gets another video game. He always says the same thing to me. “I know, I know, I understand the sanctity of human life”. My hope is that he has an understanding of how precious this world is and how precious each and every person is. I also want him to have a strong sense of self.
Q: What is the best advice someone has given you?
Liz: The best advice. I love this. I had a photographer once. She was taking my headshots, I was about 19. She said “act like you’re already where you want to be.” I really quite loved this. Because I think it encompasses a lot of things. When we’re where we want to be, we have confidence, we’re kinder, we’re far more open to taking risks. The fear of making hard choices is less….So I suppose that advice. “Act like you’re already where you want to be.” Is my favorite. I certainly walked into many many rooms with far more confidence than I had any right to have. Still do…
Q: What brings you the most joy in life?
Liz: What brings me joy. What a perfectly Liz question. My son, my family, my Jordan, my books, movies, Adry, my friends, my work. Every single conversation I have with my mom is a delight. She is incredible. Walks in the woods, meditation, music, strawberries, picking fruit from trees. Watching love win, freedom, kindness, integrity. A fire on a cold night with deep talks and an excessive amount of laughter. Naps in the sun, fresh baked bread, music. Saying “I’m sorry”
Q: Who and what have inspired you the most?
Liz: What inspired me the most. Well, I should start with my grandmother, who grew up living with two families in a one room house, who put herself through school and by sheer force of will and intellect became an aerospace Engineer. A mom who raised my Mom alone, who treated the world and those she loved with so much kindness, generosity and love that It completely and totally shaped who I am. Who had me listen to Billie holiday until I had memorized every single word. Who taught me about unconditional love. Her favorite word was marvelous and she was.
Q: If you could be cast in any Broadway production, what would it be and why?
Liz: Eva Perón… has always been a dream. Three sisters… any of them. Hedda gabler… ohhhh so many dreams.
Q: At what moment did you realize you wanted to be an actress?
Liz: I always wanted to be an actress. Always always always. I certainly didn’t think that it was possible. But I certainly always wanted it. I saw a lot of theater with my mom when I was a kid. Longed for it. Dreamed about it. Put on lots of shows and invited my neighbors. I was very serious about it. I remember being upset when people remarked on how adorable it was that I wanted to be an actor..
Q: Is there any part of acting you’ve found you love that you didn’t realize when you first started this career?
Liz: Anything about it that I didn’t realize. What a fun question. I don’t think anyone’s ever asked me that before. I suppose I had no idea that it was so unbalanced. I think that I had seen so many incredibly strong women and had centered my dreams and hopes around their performances, this…. ideal. I had no idea that they were paid soooooo much less. That was a shock
Q: What is your favorite book of all time, the one that has had the greatest impact on you? and why did it speak to you so much?
Liz: Oh dear, the greatest book of all time. This is so hard for me. I never have an answer to this question. But I love it! I think that the books I read as a child were the most influential for me. A wrinkle in time. Dune. and The lion, the witch and the wardrobe. I think they spoke to me because they were world building. My imagination was given a freedom and a license to dream. To think outside the box. To have compassion for all different creatures. They were probably my greatest teachers outside of my family.
Q: If you could play any Disney character, who would it be?
Liz: Disney character! Amazing. I’m so sorry. I can’t pick. Snow White, Rapunzel, Elsa…
Q: Is there an actor/actress you’d like to work with? Who?
Liz: Actress I’d love to work with. Yes. Oh my yes. Juliet Stevenson. Fiona Shaw and Emma Thompson. Although, it would be very hard for me to work with any of them. Because I love them so very much. I would blush and stammer and probably be fairly useless.
