The ballerina Misty Copeland has had a meteoric rise under unique circumstances. Rivka Galchen writes:

"Copeland is considered an unlikely ballerina: she is curvy and she is black, neither of which is a common attribute in the field. But it is her very late beginning and rapid attainment of virtuosity that are arguably without precedent for a female ballerina."

Jessica Chastain photographed by Yu Tsai at the Variety Studio at Toronto Film Festival.
Speaking about her film “Miss Julie” - “(There are) great characters that through the years are played over and over. When you look at those classics, the writing for women, it’s so deep and can be expressed so many different ways. One actress in a role is so different from another actress in a role.”
