With the style and grace of Katharine Hepburn, the smoky wit and wisdom of Dorothy Parker, and her own personal philosophy, "rise above it," 93-year-old actress Mimi Weddell is an iconic American original, rising above the confines of her own daily life, to reach for the stars and fulfill her dreams. Her full-time acting career began at age 65, and her daily routine mocks the traditional image of old age. From her 14-hour days at acting auditions and cattle calls, to her weekly gymnastics and dance workouts, Mimi Weddell exudes a 'can-do, will-do' attitude in the face of life's trials and tribulations, and moves through her challenges with grace.
