From miming for money in Central Park to winning on Oscar, our guest today has experienced an incredible climb in her personal, professional and financial life.
I’m welcoming Christine Lahti to the show. You might know her from her roles in Chicago Hope, Running on Empty, Housekeeping, And Justice for All, Swing Shift, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, God of Carnage, and The Blacklist.
She’s also a new author, and we’ll be talking about her book True Stories from an Unreliable Eyewitness, where she shared personal stories from her childhood and acting career – many for the first time.
I’ll be chatting with Christine about what it was like to grow up in the midwest in a traditional, patriarchal family…to scraping together coins in the early days of her performing career. The intersection of money and feminism…and how to build a lasting career in the world of entertainment.
