The 2013 Voices of Our Times series will conclude with a special presentation featuring Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winning actress Ali MacGraw. MacGraw will talk informally about her once fast-paced life in Hollywood and her new life in the peaceful city of Sante Fe, New Mexico.
MacGraw first gained attention for her role in Goodbye, Columbus in 1969, for which she won a Golden Globe Award. Shortly after, she starred in Love Story for which she earned a second Golden Globe and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. In 1972 she appeared with actor Steve McQueen in The Getaway.
Her acting career began in 1968 with a role in the movie A Lovely Way to Die, but it was her performance in Goodbye, Columbus that got the attention of Paramount executive Robert Evans. MacGraw and Evans married in 1971 and had one son.
In 1970, she was cast as Jennifer Cavalleri in one of the highest grossing films in U.S. history Love Story. In 1972, she co-starred in the action adventure film The Getaway with Steve McQueen. The two fell in love while filming and later married.
MacGraw re-emerged with the films Convoy in 1978, Players in 1979, Just Tell Me What You Want in 1980, and then the 1983 television series China Rose and The Winds of War. In 1984, she joined the ABC prime-time show Dynasty as Lady Ashley Mitchell. MacGraw made her Broadway theater debut in New York City in 2006 in Festen.
Since 1994, MacGraw has lived in Sante Fe, New Mexico, staying far away from the Hollywood scene.
