Spielberg, Day-Lewis Set for OWN's OPRAH'S NEXT CHAPTER Tonight
Oprah Winfrey talks with Academy Award winners Steven Spielberg, Daniel Day-Lewis and Sally Field about their collaboration on the feature film "Lincoln" in a special 90-minute episode of OPRAH'S NEXT CHAPTER airing tonight, December 2 (9-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network.
In a full circle moment, Winfrey meets Spielberg at DreamWorks Studios in Los Angeles in the same studio building where she first auditioned for him for her role in "The Color Purple." In an intimate sit-down interview, Spielberg shares with Winfrey the process of creating "Lincoln" and how he was moved to tears during filming. They are then joined for a rare interview with Day-Lewis for a fascinating conversation about his first-time collaboration with Spielberg, his yearlong immersion into the life of Lincoln and how together, with the rest of the esteemed cast, they created a "sacred space" on the set.
Later, Winfrey shares in a heartfelt conversation with Sally Field from her new home in California. Field talks about the emotional depths she tapped into for her role as Mary Todd Lincoln, how she fought for the part and her immediate connection with Day-Lewis. She also opens up about being plagued by self-doubt, her pride in parenting a son who is gay and the joy she welcomes as she enters the next chapter of her life.
