Actress Jenny Gabrielle (Only the Brave, Georgia O'Keefe, Festival in Cannes) is a history buff and a strong believer in science. But her heart is always in the arts, the one thing robots can't do better than humans. Jenny shares what life has offered her so far, including what it was like to have a Republican father who worked on top secret scientific projects, how she lost her voice and (almost) her passport on a Cannes shoot with Anouk Aimee, and why she's become so interested in Queen Elizabeth's poetic spies.
LESSONS FROM JENNY:
- Honor and respect science.
- Art is the one thing robots can't do better than us.
- Have gratitude for the things you have.
