Eliza Dushku interviewed at CNN Heroes event. Eliza's video interview with Naamua Delaney about CNN Hero Viola Vaughn.

Viola Vaughn was a friend and colleague of Eliza's mother. She is the founder and Executive Director of the Women's Health Education and Prevention Strategies Alliance (WHEPSA) and the '10,000 Girls program' in Kaolack, Senegal, West Africa.

If you want to get some idea why Joss thinks Eliza is an exceptional person who is going to be a huge star watch this video.

So did anyone figure out if this really is Rupert Murdoch?

Good little interview. I like the interviewer's question about the vast gulf between what these people are doing in places like Senegal and the red carpet events in Hollywood. Eliza had a thoughtful answer to that and the other questions.
Daylight, LOL!
Eliza as beautiful as ever. Good cause, wishing her success.
Since it wasn't linked, if people want more info: 10,000 Girls.
Girls schools remain a crucial feminist issue. This month the Taliban attacked Afghani girls on their way to school with acid. Wonderful to hear Eliza stand up for someone who's providing girls the education they need and deserve.

Thanks for the link, B!x.

I hadn't seen that story, Pointy.
(Trying to calm murderous rage now.)
Hare, hare, Pointy!
Or is that "Hear, hear! I've seen both in trial so I'm wondering...hate to proscute any rabbits that's unwarrent:)
Depends on your accent ;-)
FWIW, if you want more context on Eliza's interests in the world outside the US, here's a travelogue of her trip to Iran. (Warning: The site is a little screwy, or can be.)

Pointy, you crack me up:)
Oh, btw, American. New England accent with a southern twist. Yeah, unique and strange. That's me.
For what it's worth, my immediate supervisor was born the same year Eliza was.
