Presenting the Stockholm Achievement Award

Posted on Nov. 12, 2012

Thursday evening, I was thrilled to give Willem Defoe his Stockholm Achievement Award. Willem did a Q & A before I gave him his award and it was fascinating to hear about how he started his acting career in a small town in Wisconsin. Willem is a remarkable human being and has a total commitment to stage and screen acting. My wife, Parky, myself, and the jury traded stories with Willem and his wife, Giada Colagrande, at a dinner given by the festival in his honor afterward at a small Italian restaurant. Lots of toasts and laughter! I know our paths will cross again soon!
