Yesterday the entertainment industry lost one of it’s brilliant stars, American filmmaker/director, screenwriter, and author Nora Ephron passed away after fighting a long battle with leukemia.
Known for her romantic comedies “When Harry Met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle”, Nora was most well known for her relateable depictions of everyday life and strong leading female story lines in her films.
I had the pleasure of acting in the Ephron sisters’ play, “Love, Loss, and What I Wore” last summer with actors Ashley Austin-Morris, Julie Halston, Emily Bergl, and Susan Sullivan, (shown above).
Although Nora is no longer with us, she will never leave our hearts. Her amazing legacy in Hollywood films and her everlasting dedication for the female experience in everyday life will be hard to match but one she would encourage to carry on!
Thank you Nora, for the path you forged for women in media. You showed us that it’s okay to be different, gutsy and courageous – as an individual and a woman.
