It’s Queen Meryl’s birthday!
If you know me, you know how much she means to me. One of the biggest inspirations in my life. An artist that has continually raised the standards of her craft.
I couldn’t articulate enough how much she means to me, as much as she does to millions of filmgoers around the world.
I am happy to be living in a time when she is still continues give her life to film.
I would love to meet her someday.
