"Meeting an actress who has always been one of my favorites is an indescribable experience. Through the whole meeting and interview I just could not believe that it was really happening. Emília Vášáryová is a delightful person who with her welcoming personality made all my fears and nerves about the interview go away. In the hour that we spent with her I found a different perspective on life. She inspired me to work harder in achieving my dreams. The motto by which she lives inspired me and made me realise that a lot of things I was doing in my life just weren't right."
