Sissy Spacek      

Academy Award-winning Actress and Singer

From the podium she reveals the secrets to her success as an actress, as a woman and as a mother, in fascinating lectures that never fail to inspire and empower audiences.

From her striking performance in Terence Malick’s Badlands in 1973 to her Oscar-nominated turn in the 2001 drama In the Bedroom, Sissy has been one of the most revered and honored actresses in Hollywood history, garnering six Academy Award nominations and three Golden Globe Awards. Her portrayal of Loretta Lynn in Coal Miner’s Daughter won her not only an Academy Award for Best Actress but a Grammy nomination for her singing on the soundtrack—and a permanent place in America’s heart.

In 1986, at the height of her career, Sissy withdrew from acting for years to focus on raising her family full-time. It’s a decision she has never regretted, and one that did little to dim her brilliance: her memorable comeback in David Lynch’s The Straight Story and her Academy Award nomination for In the Bedroom proved that Sissy is still in full command of her art.

A legendary figure whose down-to-earth nature, marvelous artistic skill and quiet intensity have made her an inspiration to millions, Sissy is a compelling and empowering presence on the lecture stage.
