On Her 87th Birthday, Lois Smith Joins Twitter
Hollywood and Broadway rejoice! In celebration of her 87th birthday, legendary stage and screen actress Lois Smith has taken on a new role that may prove to be one of the most demanding and difficult challenges of her six decade career: Twitter user.
Recently nominated for an IFP Gotham Award for her role as Marjorie in Michael Almereyda's acclaimed film MARJORIE PRIME, Lois has taken the leap into the digital age with her newly verified Twitter account. When asked about her Twitter debut, an existential Lois said, "I don't know what I'm doing here, but I'm always up for new experiences."
The entire Twitter team is "thrilled to have her!" and welcomes Lois to the Twitterverse today.
Lois is joining Twitter in concert with FilmRise's Oscar campaign for MARJORIE PRIME as well as the release of her latest film, Greta Gerwig's LADY BIRD. With a combination of grace, humor and more than 60 years experience as an actress, the insight Lois brings to Twitter may just break the internet.
