Glenn Close Interview: Passion Projects and New Media

From 10 a.m. until late into the afternoon, it was a packed day for Glenn Close on SMU’s campus.

The actress came to speak with theater classes in the Meadows School of the Arts, along with producer and friend Bonnie Curtis.

The Daily Mustang was able to sit down with Close for a brief interview on new media – an art form that seems divergent from her principal discipline of stage acting.

Outside of SMU, Close and Curtis are in Dallas this week collecting the final funds for their latest project: a film adaptation of the play “The Singular Life of Albert Nobbs.”

Close played the role of Albert Nobbs on Broadway back in the early 80s. It’s a role she says she’s passionate about and a film she is excited to co-produce.

Though we chatted with her about the film project, the Daily Mustang also wanted to talk about her “online diet.” What is Glenn Close’s presence online? And where does she see the convergence of film, stage, and new media?
