Meet TIME 100 Honoree Sandra Oh’s Inspirational Acting Coach and Mentor, Kim Gillingham

For Kim Gillingham, 2019 TIME 100 honoree Sandra Oh’s acting coach, dreams reveal where your “energy wants to go.”

“See if you can feel what wants to come up and through you,” she tells a group of actors during a class in L.A., with Oh among the students. These movement-centric acting exercises — which you can watch for yourself in the video above — are really something to see.

Gillingham first learned the technique of acting through your dreams by using your own subconscious to inform your character with legendary acting coach Sandra Seacat. “I felt like the roof came off of me,” she tells TIME about learning the dream analysis technique.

Since Oh began studying with Gillingham more than a decade ago, the method has informed her acting, through ten seasons as Christina Yang on Grey’s Anatomy to her titular role in the BBC’s Killing Eve: both of which earned her Golden Globe awards. The latter role also made her the first Asian woman nominated for a Best Actress Emmy award.

Oh paid tribute to her acting coach during her Screen Actors Guild award acceptance speech for Killing Eve in January. “I’d like to thank my mentor Kim Gillingham and all of the fellow creative dreamers,” she said. “I am not the actor I am without the work that we share.”

The art Oh creates is more than just a job, she explains during her TIME 100 cover shoot. It’s her “religion.” Thinking of her work in this way has taught her that it’s not something you can start and stop with the flip of a switch. “That’s how I’ve learned to also open up creativity in a way where it’s a constant peeling of the onion,” she says.

“It’s incredibly exciting,” Gillingham says of watching Oh’s work in action. “Each time I see it, I feel like we’re making a little breath, a dent in the idea of what it has to be, and bringing through the humanity.”

But this is hard work, Oh says. It’s people like Gillingham who make her the actor she is. “Anyone who is a professional artist, you know how much work it takes,” she says. “It doesn’t just come. You need to find support and inspiration.” The coach says society needs the hard work of creatives like Oh.

“The fate of the world rests in our leaders and the artists that will make the material that will inform the culture,” she says.

During her toast at the 2019 TIME 100 Gala, Oh echoed this sentiment, saying that art can bring people closer to each other. “I truly believe art evolves our hearts and our minds, because it allows us to experience and understand another sorrow,” she told the room of honorees. “It reminds us of universal truths. It connects us.”

Syracuse Men’s Basketball Coach Jim Boeheim Hits and Kills Pedestrian on Highway

(SYRACUSE, N.Y.) — Longtime Syracuse basketball coach Jim Boeheim struck and killed a man standing along an interstate late Wednesday night as he tried to avoid hitting the man’s disabled vehicle, police say.

Syracuse police say 51-year-old Jorge Jimenez was in a vehicle with three others before midnight Wednesday when their vehicle crashed into a guardrail and lost control on I-690 in Syracuse.

Boeheim struck Jimenez as he stood on the side of the road while trying to avoid the vehicle in the middle of the highway. Jimenez was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

“I am heartbroken that a member of our community died as the result of last night’s accident,” Boeheim said in a prepared statement. The 74-year-old Basketball Hall of Fame coach said he and his wife Juli “extend our deepest sympathies to the Jimenez family.”

He said he would not comment further “out of respect for those involved.”

Police said Boeheim is cooperating with the investigation.

“He stopped immediately and exited the vehicle,” said Syracuse Sgt. Matthew Malinowski.

Police said sobriety tests administered to Boeheim and the unidentified driver of the other vehicle were negative for any signs of impairment. No tickets have been issued to Boeheim at this time and the investigation is continuing.

Light rain and freezing rain were falling Wednesday night, though it is unclear if the weather had anything to do with the crash.

Just hours before, Boeheim’s team defeated 18th-ranked Louisville 69-49 at the Carrier Dome. The accident scene is between the dome and Boeheim’s suburban home. Police could not confirm if he was on his way home after the game.

Syracuse University director of Athletics John Wildhack said in a statement the university sent its condolences to “all impacted by this tragic accident.” Wildhack echoed police, saying Boeheim “is in contact with local authorities and cooperating fully.”

Boeheim has coached at Syracuse, his alma mater, since 1976 and is one of the most accomplished coaches in the country. He ranks second all-time in wins in Division I with 944, behind only Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski. Over his 43 years at Syracuse, Boeheim has led the team to a national title in 2003 and five Final Four appearances.

Barack Obama Got an Emphatic Endorsement to Be the New UCLA Basketball Coach

President Obama’s most recent mention came from a less than likely place: ESPN.

ESPN analyst Bill Walton—who played for the Portland Trail Blazers, the Los Angeles Clippers and the Boston Celtics throughout his career—told ESPN’s Dave Pasch that President Obama was the best option to coach the UCLA Bruins. Walton knows a little something about the Bruins’ expectations, considering the basketball legend led the team to two national championship wins in the 1970s.

“What type of characteristics should UCLA look for in the next coach?” Pasch asked the retired NBA player. “Barack Obama,” Walton replied.

Pasch seemed skeptical about the suggestion, saying, “I don’t think he’s gonna coach.” But Walton, who was inducted into the Basketball of Fame in 1993, did not back down, characterizing Pasch’s hesitation as “negative.”

“I’m sticking with Barack Obama until he says no,” Walton asserted.

President Obama has always loved the sport, and even had the White House’s tennis court converted to be used as a full basketball court, too. His brother-in-law, Craig Robinson, who is Michelle Obama‘s older brother, has coached professionally since 1999.

It’s not Walton’s first time bringing politics to the court. He made headlines in the ’70s when he played for Portland while using his celebrity for political and social advocacy, speaking out in opposition of nuclear power plants and raising money for Native Americans.

The permanent UCLA head coach position is yet to be filled.

Source: Orioles to name Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde next manager

The Baltimore Orioles will name Chicago Cubs bench coach Brandon Hyde their next manager, ESPN has confirmed. The Athletic first reported the news. Hyde, 45, replaces Buck Showalter, 62, who was let go after the Orioles finished a franchise-worst 47-115. Hyde previously had served as the Cubs’ director of player development and also was their first-base coach, before becoming manager Joe Maddon’s bench coach last season. His responsibilities under Maddon included running spring training over the past several years. Hyde also served as the Cubs’ bench coach in 2014 when Rick Renteria was manager.

Why to upgrade from coach to first class

ADVERTISEMENT


Unless you’re living the (literal) high life and have the money to spend on first class tickets every time you fly, you’re gonna have to settle for coach. Yep, you’re going to have to continue watching the first class boarders saunter on past you as they embark with their ‘speedy boarding’ passes, and you’re going to have to wonder what the first class passengers are eating while you chomp on your stale bread roll, all while you knock knees with the person next to you. But what if you could get bumped up to first class without paying extra?

Fly regularly

If you’re the kind of person who flies with the same airline regularly, you have a better chance of being upgraded from coach to business or first class. Many people who travel for business or frequently use the airline to go on vacation rack up their air miles and the airlines keep track of these numbers. Many airlines all across the world reserve first class seats for frequent flyers who travel around 25,000 miles each year as a way to say thank you! This decision works for both parties. You’re getting an awesome seat upgrade, and the airline is getting a satisfied customer who will be more likely to return and tell their friends about their experience.

Damage control

Airlines are just like the rest of us in that they all make mistakes – and when it comes to air travel, there is bound to be something that goes wrong. Whether the airline’s internal system breaks or the plane is delayed, or the airline loses your luggage, these are all things you haven’t paid for. This means the airline will need to do damage control. If any of these things happen to you, your natural instinct is to complain. Because the airline does not want to lose a valued customer, they (should) do all they can to rectify the situation or at least make your situation better. This could involve being bumped up to first class! During your complaint, ask for an upgrade in a polite manner, and they may just give it to you.

Have a lucky day

It’s common knowledge that airlines often overbook their flights. Although this allows for no-shows, they often get caught out by all of their passengers arriving, rendering some people seatless. And if you’re that person who loses their seat, that’s pretty unlucky, right? Well, not necessarily. Re-booking a passenger on a flight is an incredibly annoying and costly process for the airline, so they would rather fill up the plane in front of them – meaning those without a coach seat may have to take a trip to first class. Although this doesn’t always happen, it may just be your lucky day.

Ask for it!

Your parents have probably told you that “If you don’t ask, you don’t get” and this is very true! If you’re traveling for a special occasion, like your wedding, honeymoon, birthday or anniversary, you will probably want a bit of extra special treatment. So why not ask? If the agent rejects your request, you will literally lose nothing, because you still have your seat. But if you ask and they say yes, you’ve bagged yourself a pretty nifty freebie.

Buy it

Okay, okay, we get it. Most people don’t have the money to buy first class tickets. We know. However, sometimes you don’t need extra cash to buy yourself up a class. Throughout the year, many airlines sell their first class tickets for the same prices as their coach seats. These price drops normally happen around Christmas and New Year, so keep your eyes peeled!

So if you’re ready to book your next flight, why not see if you can get yourself upgraded? It would be pretty awesome to see how the other half live, even just for one day.

How Did We Get Here? Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Was Reportedly in Talks to Coach the Cleveland Browns, Says She’s Not Ready

The Cleveland Browns were reportedly mulling over interviewing George W. Bush’s former Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, for a head coaching job — but it’s not happening.

via TMZ:

ESPN reported Sunday that the Browns’ front office was interested in possibly bringing Condi for an interview to replace recently-fired head coach Hue Jackson. She’s a huge Browns fan, and met with some of the owners during a game earlier this year.

Aside from that though … it’s unclear what, if any, professional experience she’d bring to the table … when it comes to football, that is. She’s got a pretty decent resume, otherwise.

The Browns’ general manager, John Dorsey, issued a statement shortly after the news spread like wildfire, saying in part … “Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is a great leader, possesses the highest possible character and also happens to be a Browns fan.” 

He fully shot down the speculation, though, by adding … “Our coaching search will be thorough and deliberate, but we are still in the process of composing the list of candidates and Secretary Rice has not been discussed.” 

As for Ms. Rice … she offered her own statement on the rumor, saying “I love my Browns — and I know they will hire an experienced coach to take us to the next level.”

After going on to advocate for the hiring of more women in coaching positions, she seemed to shut down the notion of a head coaching gig by saying … “BTW — I’m not ready to coach but I would like to call a play or two next season if the Browns need ideas! And at no time will I call for a “prevent defense.”

Condoleezza coaching in the NFL? Just put the whole 2018 in rice.
