Astonishing Cinematography Cloud Atlas (2012)

Belief, like fear or love, is forced to be understood as we understand the Theory of Relativty and Principles of Uncertainty: phenomena that determine the course of our lives.
Yesterday, my life was heading in one direction; today, it is headed in another. Yesterday, I believed I would never have done what I’ve done today. These forces that often remake time and space, that can shape and alter who we imagine ourselves to be, begin long before we are born and continue after we perish. Our lives and our choices, like quantum trajectories, are understood moment to moment. At each point of intersection, each encounter suggests a new potential direction.

I have been so blessed to portray such a phenomenal woman as Dana Scully. She has taught me about strength and self-worth and personal power. In early episodes, when I was called upon to address large groups of male FBI agents with authority and self assurance, I felt so scared and weak that my voice would come out high-pitched and shaky. But the more I “acted as if” I was self-assured, the more I felt powerful. And believe it or not, it can be that simple. "Acting as if" is sometimes all it takes to empower oneself, and I have learned to carry this into other areas of my life. When meeting with high-powered directors and producers, or presenting an award at an award ceremony, or doing a talk show; I act as if I am a strong, capable, worthy woman of power. And the more I do this, the more people listen to what I have to say and value my opinion.
