Why you should listen

The Howards have been in the business of entertainment for three generations, navigating a life of visibility -- a challenge we now all increasingly face with growing access to public platforms and a global audience.

As a public figure in her own right, Bryce Dallas Howard is a multi-hyphenate creator -- an actor, director, writer and producer -- whose decades of experience and strangely prescient role in Black Mirror's "Nosedive" episode have provided her tips for managing a life in public. But even more, it's her roles as an educator and parent of young teenagers that have shaped her principles about living a life in public.

As a filmmaker, Howard has directed episodes for the live-action Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett and The Mandalorian. She also directed and produced the feature-length documentary Dads on AppleTV+. As an actor, Howard will next be seen in the third installment of the Jurassic World franchise, Jurassic World Dominion, and Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming spy thriller Argylle.

Howard has received numerous accolades for her work including a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Kenneth Branaugh's adaptation of As You Like It, a SAG Award nomination for her performance in Black Mirror, and an Oscar shortlisting for her short film When You Find Me.

Howard is the founder of Nine Muses Entertainment and served as part of the faculty at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts.
