Meryl Streep

Sophie's choice 1982 – played the role of Polish Immigrant – Polish Accent

Won Academy Award for Best Actress

Meryl Streep’s role in Sophie’s choice as a mother of two was outstanding. One scene where she is asked to choose between her two children – one will be alive and the other will be killed – her acting is simply superb. Nobody could give better expression than Meryl Streep and for this role, she did won an Academy Award. Meryl Streep herself believes that through her performance in this movie, she has accomplished something in acting. Please note the polish accent which she adapted for this film. She did study polish three hours a day for two months to get the accent perfect. Meryl also says that in a highly emotional charged up scene, the first act is always the best. She shares the experience of this particular scene, where the co-stars and child actors were highly emotional and this made her bring out her best performance. Meryls says that if the scene demands her to cry, and if everything is right – the situation, character, mood, then she can cry naturally.

Silkwood 1983 – Played the role of Union Activist

Meryl streep played the role of Karen Silkwooda worker at a fuel fabrication site. She makes plutonium fuel rods for nuclear reactors , where she deals with the threat of exposure to radiation. She has become a union activist, concerned that corporate practices may adversely affect the health of workers. She is also engaged in a conflict with her former common-law husband in an effort to have more time with their three children. Because the plant has fallen behind on a major contract employees are required to work long hours of overtime. She believes that managers are falsifying safety reports and cutting corners wherever possible, risking the welfare of the personnel. Karen approaches the union with her concerns and becomes active in lobbying for safeguards. She travels to Washington,D.C to testify before the Atomic Energy Commission. She interacts with union officials who appear to be more interested in the publicity she is generating than her welfare and that of her co-workers.

When Silkwood and other workers become contaminated by radiation, plant officials try to blame her for the incident. When she discovers that negatives of photographs of faulty fuel rods have been retouched and records of inadequate safety measures have been altered, she decides to conduct an investigation of her own. Once she feels she has gathered sufficient documentation, Silkwood contacts a reporter from the New York Times and arranges a nighttime meeting. In the film's final moments, the scene fades out as Silkwood, on her way to the meeting, sees approaching headlights in her rear-view mirror, which draw up so close that they blind her and make her unable to watch the road ahead. The scene fades in on the aftermath of her fatal one-car crash, and the viewer is left to decide whether the crash was an accident.

Out of Africa 1985 – Played the role of a wealthy woman from Denmark-Danish Accent

Meryl Streep says that she heard that Sydney Pollock knew that she was a good actress but was not sure that she sexy enough to play the role. So Meryl Streep went to the auditon with a low cut dress and then she says it worked! She also recollects how she had to risk her life in this movie, especially while shooting with lions.

Meryl Streep plays Karen Dinesen (a wealthy but unmarried woman) and asks her friend Baron Bror Blixed to enter into a marriage of convenience with her. He agrees to the marriage, and the two of them plan to move to Africa to begin a dairy farm. After marrying Bror in British East Africa, she finds things going wrong. Bror has used her money to purchase a coffee plantation rather than a dairy farm. He also has a lot of extra marital affair. To make matters worse, Karen contracts syphilis from her philandering husband and is forced to return to Denmark for a long and difficult period of treatment. After she has recovered and returns to Africa, the First World War is drawing to an end. However, it becomes clear that her marriage to the womanizing Bror has not changed, and she eventually asks him to move out of their house. No longer able to have children of her own due to the effects of the syphilis, she decides to open a school to teach reading, writing, arithmetic, and also some European customs to the African tribal children of the area. However, her coffee plantation runs into financial difficulties, and she is forced to rely on bank loans to make ends meet. Her friendship with Denys Finch Hatton develops further. However Denys

refuses to commit to marriage or give up his free lifestyle and tells her that he will not love her more just because of a "piece of paper". Karen grudgingly continues in the relationship, knowing it will not ever be official. He decides to invite a female mutual acquaintance on one of his safaris, which exceeds Karen's ability to tolerate his justifications for his lifestyle and behavior. Karen asks him to accede to her request to not take her along, and he refuses. She asks him to move out. The plantation finally yields a good harvest at long last, but a devastating fire breaks out in the processing shed, and the crops and all of the factory equipment are destroyed.

Now financially broke, and with her relationship with Denys over, Karen prepares to leave Africa to return home to Denmark, just as British East Africa is becoming Kenya Colony. She arranges to sell everything that she owns and empties the house of all her luxurious items for a rummage sale. In the now empty house, Denys visits her that night, and the two of them enjoy a drink and a dance. He asks her if he may escort her to Mombassa in his biplane to begin her journey home. She agrees and he promises to return after a few days. However, Denys never returns, and Karen is told that his plane has crashed and that he has been killed. Her loss now complete, Karen attends his funeral in the Ngong Hills.With Denys gone, Karen's head servant, Farah, takes her to the station, for the train to Mombasa.

Karen later became an author and a storyteller, writing about her experiences and letters in Africa, though she never returned there.
