Marian Seldes: Talent and Dedication

Actress Seldes accepts her lifetime achievement award at the American Theatre Wing's 64th annual Tony Awards ceremony in New York

I think there is a place in the world for everyone with talent and dedication. We can’t know what it will be. We have no control over that. But we do have control over how we love and how we behave, and we show up with dedication and generosity, and we will have a life that matters. I am not the actress I hoped to become, but I am the actress that was needed and used.
