To say that Meryl Streep is a natural actor is only part of her success story. Her ambition, pluck, and training are equally impressive. Upon theatrical stages in high school, at Vassar and the Yale School of Drama, at Joseph Papp’s Public Theater in New York City, and in Hollywood, Streep has radiated authenticity in a wide range of roles. “There’s nothing she can’t do,” marveled one director. And Streep, at age thirty-two, was still just beginning her remarkable acting career when Time’s cover story reported on her new film, The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1981). Streep has gone on to win three Academy Awards and has been nominated a record nineteen times.
Decir que Meryl Streep es una actriz innata es solo parte de la historia de su éxito. Igualmente impresionantes han sido su ambición, su audacia y su entrenamiento. Desde los escenarios teatrales escolares, en la Universidad de Vassar, la Escuela de Drama de Yale, el neoyorquino Public Theater de Joseph Papp y luego en Hollywood, Streep ha irradiado autenticidad en una amplia gama de roles. “No hay nada que ella no pueda hacer”, decía maravillado un director. A sus treinta y dos años, la actriz apenas comenzaba su extraordinaria carrera cuando Time publicó un artículo de portada sobre su nueva película, The French Lieutenant’s Woman (1981). Streep ha ganado tres premios de la Academia y ha sido nominada una cantidad récord de diecinueve veces.
