Tribute to Sienna Miller: Online Conversation and Q&A
Actor Sienna Miller is expected to participate in an online Q&A.
Join us for an in-depth online conversation with acclaimed actor Sienna Miller, in which she will discuss her extensive career and celebrated performances.
With her first two starring film roles, Sienna Miller established her range. In the 18th-century-set Casanova (2005), she proved adept at period roles and established her talent for comedy. Factory Girl (2006) was a different animal altogether, a dark drama and one in which she wholly inhabited Andy Warhol’s tragic and thoroughly modern muse, New York “It” girl Edie Sedgwick. Miller got her start as a model before making her screen debut at 19 opposite Rupert Everett in South Kensington (2001) and upping her profile with supporting parts in the gangster thriller Layer Cake (Festival 2005) and the dramedy remake Alfie (2004). Among other roles, she’s played a soap opera actress going head to head with a contemptuous reporter in Interview (2007), for which Miller received a Film Independent Spirit Award nomination; Caitlin Thomas, Dylan Thomas’s wife in The Edge of Love (2008), for which the British Independent Film Awards nominated her for Best Supporting Actress; actress Tippi Hedren in The Girl (2012), which garnered her a Golden Globe nomination; and a single mom (and grandmother!) in American Woman (2018). This tribute was originally scheduled as part of the 2020 SFFILM Festival in conjunction with her latest film Wander Darkly, which premiered to great acclaim earlier this year at Sundance.
