TVC 552.6: Beau Bridges and his daughter, actress/director Emily Bridges, talk to Ed about the important role that Theatricum Botanicum has played in both of their performing lives. Beau also answers a few questions about some of his other film, TV, and stage roles, including working with David Janssen on The Fugitive early in his career and his approach to playing such historical figures as Benjamin Franklin and legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden.
