Speakers

Minnie Driver

Minnie Driver

Minnie Driver has been charming audiences with relatable roles and surprising characters for more than two decades. She has been nominated for an Academy Award, an Emmy and a Golden Globe, among many other honours.

In December, as sexual misconduct scandals spread from Hollywood to other halls of power, Minnie made international headlines when she said men focusing on distinguishing among types of bad behaviour were "utterly tone deaf" and "part of the problem."

Minnie has appeared in some 40 films and more than two dozen television series, and is a singer-songwriter with three albums. Now starring in "Speechless" as the irrepressible and indefatigable mother of a disabled child, Minnie is herself a mom to a son born in 2008.
