Summary
James Lipton hosts an evening of discussion with actor Mary Stuart Masterson. Masterson discusses her upbringing in a theater and film oriented household headed by her parents, writer/director Peter Masterson and actor Carlin Glynn; her decision to pursue acting, and landing a role in the motion picture Heaven help us (1985) at age 17; being cast as a "tough, vulnerable, misfit" in a series of motion pictures, including At close range (1986), in which she played opposite Sean Penn and Christopher Walken; Immediate family (1989); as Idgie Threadgoode in Fried green tomatoes (1991); and Benny & Joon (1993), in which she played a young psychotic woman, and worked closely with co-stars Johnny Depp and Aidan Quinn. Masterson describes the chemistry she feels when working with other actors; acting for the stage versus the screen; what she seeks from a director; and her interest in making films. She is joined for the last ten minutes of discussion by her parents, who speak about their drama training and their work with the Actors Studio. A brief question and answer session with Masterson, her parents, and the Actors Studio master's degree students concludes the program.
