Episode Info

Episode Info: Thirty years ago a gifted young actress from Kansas risked security and comfort to become part of the movie-making industry in Hollywood. Two years later she landed the role of a lifetime and walked onto a soundstage for Stephen Spielberg’s movie, “E.T.: The Extraterrestrial.” Her character Mary, a smart, funny young mother, was about to change this actress’s life, as well as a generation’s views of modern motherhood. This heralded portrayal raised as many questions as it did answers for the rising star. In the three decades since her first day of work on the film, those questions have been answered. In her new book, Bright Light, Dee Wallace shares her touching story and wisdom that can help each of us rekindle and nurture the heartlight that guides us home to our true self. Bright Light, her third book, follows this charming actress’s emotional, spiritual and professional journey through triumphs and tragic losses. From the school of “hard knocks,” tempered by memorable accomplishments as an actress and acting teacher, her journey is a metaphor. Her story contains lessons most of us confront during our travels through life and aging. And, when you think about it from this perspective, Dee Wallace’s story is a quintessential Boomer journey. She has more than 130 films and scores of television roles and series to her credit. Her films range from some of the scariest to the funniest ever made, including Cujo, The Howling, Ten, The Frighteners, Critters, and, of course, ET.  She has starred in four television series and more than 400 TV commercials and is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after TV guest stars. She is also an adored inspirational speaker, spiritual teacher and healer. To Know More About Dee Wallace:
