Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu

For most people, Lucy Liu needs no introduction; her illustrious film and television career has made her a household name. As the child of Chinese immigrants in New York City, an acting career was not what Lucy was raised to aspire to. It was something that I wanted to do from a very young age but it was definitely not on the radar for a Chinese immigrant family she joked with Deepak Chopra in this show. They were more concerned with education. But after college, Lucy moved back to New York to begin auditioning and focusing on acting. Read more.

Isabella Huffington

Isabella Huffington

Arianna Huffington’s daughter Isabella is an emerging artist with sold-out shows in LA and NYC. She’s dedicated to making her art more accessible and less restricted to the museum space. In this show she explores with Deepak Chopra the comparisons between meditation and art and being able to appreciate what’s around us right now. Isabella started meditating to help heal a decade long eating-disorder caused by anxiety of getting ahead and succeeding. Which goes back to art, she explains. We don’t pay enough attention to where we are. You can pass something 100 times before it actually catches your attention. Having used the unconventional media of sharpies and collage, she believes her experiences with problem solving while making her art is a great metaphor to the limitations we face in our daily life. People try years to make one idea work, why not instead be more creative with the other tools you have and open more doors. Art opens the window to a bigger awareness, it gives you a different perspective. Creating the life you want is part of a creative process too.

Willem Dafoe

Willem Dafoe

Willem Dafoe never set out to be a famous actor; he wasn’t a child who dreamed of a place in Hollywood. In fact, growing up, he didn’t really have an answer for those who asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. I never had a picture in mind, I just kind of drifted from situation to situation, he explains in this show. I never had that moment that you hear a lot of actors have where they say, oh I want to be an actor. For Willem, it was more of a progression from one project to another without a clear desire to turn it into a larger career. But a career is precisely what it became. He recently sat down with Deepak Chopra to discuss his work, the art of acting and how he approaches each new role. Read more.
