Actress & Poker Player Jennifer Tilly

In this episode of The Chat with Claire Fordham podcast, Claire interviews Oscar nominated actress and star poker player Jennifer Tilly.

Jennifer is perhaps best known for her role as The Bride of Chucky in the horror franchise but she is much better than that with critically acclaimed roles in Dancing at the Blue Iguana and Bound. And an Academy Award nomination for her role in Bullets over Broadway, directed by Woody Allen.

Then there’s her other career as poker player where Jennifer is one of the few players, men or women, who can afford to buy into big games. Jennifer chats about some of her favorite roles, being directed by Woody Allen, her own close call with a Hollywood Executive in light of the #MeToo movement and the crazy world of poker where she confirms the rumor that she has won almost a million dollars playing poker and how much she has lost.

In this episode of The Chat with Claire Fordham podcast, Claire interviews Clinical Psychologist & Librettist Dr. Terry Marks-Tarlow.

Terry has a thriving therapy practice in LA, is an acclaimed author, artist, dancer and yogi who accepted the challenge to write the book for a mini opera, Oroborium, comfortably slipping into the shoes of the great Welsh poet Dylan Thomas who drank himself to death on his way to California to work with the great composer Igor Stravinsky before they could properly start the project.

Sixty years on, the prestigious Juilliard School of Music commissioned composer Jonathan Dawe to finish the opera and he invited Terry to write the libretto as they’d successfully worked on another opera together.

Terry talks about that incredible journey that culminated in a performance in New York’s Lincoln Center and gives advice on how to be emotionally and physically fit.
