Jeremy talks to Tami Stronach, dancer, and actress who was the Childlike Empress in The Neverending Story.
Tami Stronach is the artistic director of Tami Stronach Dance, and the cofounder of the family entertainment company, Paper Canoe. She is also an educator and a public speaker dedicated to inspiring others to keep their creative life alive, to exercise the imagination, and build community and empathy through art.
Stronach made her acting debut as “The Childlike Empress” in The Neverending Story (1984), a film adaptation of the novel Die Unendliche Geschichte (The Neverending Story) by Michael Ende. She has not since had many known acting roles; her parents preferred that she did not pursue any further acting to avoid the possible dangers many child actresses in both movies and television sometimes encounter. She has nevertheless since acted in the play “Chambre” at the La MaMa Experimental Theatre Club, and she has further studied acting with Laura Esterman. She had a leading role in the Czech fantasy film, Poslední z Aporveru, a tale of two children trying to save their world from destruction
