Dianna Agron (As They Made Us, Glee, Acid Man, Shiva Baby) joins us to discuss what it was like to work with Mayim on her new film, As They Made Us. She opens up about her experiences growing up in hotels and her family’s struggles after her father’s multiple sclerosis diagnosis. Mayim and Dianna bond over the scrutiny they faced while publicly coming of age on a television show, the inclination to make art after processing grief, and the benefits of healthy compartmentalization. Mayim explains the process of writing her film in response to the loss of her father and why Dianna’s character was the most difficult for her to write. She discusses body and emotional awareness in another installment of Moments of Peace and Calm.
Actor, singer, and dancer Dianna Agron began supporting UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, in May 2016 when she visited resettled refugees in Austria. Dianna subsequently travelled with UNHCR to Jordan to meet with Syrian refugees living in towns and cities, as well as refugee camps. Through interviews and social media Dianna actively encouraged her friends, family and fans to get behind the #WithRefugees campaign calling for world leaders to act in solidarity and take shared responsibility in their response to the global refugee crisis. She signed the petition and added her voice to our #WithRefugees campaign film alongside fellow high-profile supporters, refugees and UNHCR staff from around the world.
