Creativity – Laura Linney 006

By Steve Berg

Laura Linney is a three-time Academy Award-nominated actress. She has been in some of my all-time favorite films and shows. She is also a four-time Tony nominated actress. The most recent nomination was for her role in The Little Foxes, which wrapped up on Broadway at the beginning of July. We had a truly special discussion on creativity and creative process. We talked about nature versus nurture. We talked about the impact of practice on creativity. We compared inherent creative genius and iterative creativity. We wrapped up with the value mistakes and challenges on the process as it relates to creativity. This is a different kind of episode from the others, which I thought was very interesting and full of insight.
