Years before I knew the name of my newest interview subject, Ve Neill, I was witness to her work on some of the most enjoyable movies of my youth. From Beetlejuice (which won her the first of three Best Makeup Oscars) to Mrs. Doubtfire (which won her a second Best Makeup Oscar) to the Batman sequels, Ve Neill helped create some of the most memorable images the screen has ever seen. I’d been wanting to interview her about her life and work for several years now, and earlier this month, it finally happened. Join me as we talk about Ve’s life and work from the 70s to today and into the future.
The Lost Boys
I’ve always admired women of strength. Strength takes many forms, from the physical to the mental to the emotional. One of the strongest women I’ve ever known of is my newest interview subject. Spice Williams-Crosby rose like a phoenix from the ashes of addiction and a terrible car accident to become an actress, a stuntwoman, a body-builder and an advocate for abused women.
