Mary Stuart Masterson quotes
And that's what's beautiful to me, is he did not become a victim of it, and he didn't become a statistic, he just kind of kept on marching through, no matter what people threw at him.

Mary Stuart Masterson
I find that to be one of the great reasons to do a movie like this. To immortalize people who are brave enough to take a risk.

Mary Stuart Masterson
I guess you should approach the roles differently when they're actual people who have been, this is the difference. Getting the accent exact, or the hair exact is less important in a situation like this.

Mary Stuart Masterson
I know a lot of people, surgeons that are friends of mine, who of course had heard of Blalock, but hadn't heard of either of either Taussig or Vivian Thomas.

Mary Stuart Masterson
I think she looked at Vivien the same way. Of course you can. You know. And, and yet with great respect, because she knew how hard it must have been. And that it was even harder for him, of course, than for her.

Mary Stuart Masterson
I think there is a lot of different things it touches upon. Certainly it touches upon having passion in your art, whatever that may be.

Mary Stuart Masterson
I'd like to think Helen very much understood what it was to be disadvantaged in the medical field. And that that was something that she never let dictate her choices.

Mary Stuart Masterson
In this case they're doctors. But having passion for your work and to take risks in order to better human kind. That's a pretty big theme. It's pretty inspiring.

Mary Stuart Masterson
It's really about perseverance over a long period of time, and the fact that despite all the absurd limitations that racism sort of imposed on Vivien and Blalock, and the culture in which they were living, Vivien managed to stay focused on the goal.

Mary Stuart Masterson
Just the actual physical ability to hold four instruments simultaneously and do some of the things that Vivien was able to do is mind blowing to any surgeon. He never went to medical school and he became one of the great teachers of medicine himself, people are just amazed.

Mary Stuart Masterson
On the other hand, there are only so many people who really knew how she was exactly, like what did her accent sound like, and the fact that she developed profound deafness when she was first running the Harriet Lane.

Mary Stuart Masterson
One friend of mine, he's a surgeon, too. He was staggered that without formal training, that anyone self taught could use their hands and do what Vivien did and invent these instruments, and respirator, and things that he did that were just unbelievable innovations.

Mary Stuart Masterson
Regardless of the color of his skin, it's what he was able to do with his own initiative and drive and passion is really the story, I think.

Mary Stuart Masterson
She came up with a whole way of doing fluoroscopy, which is kind of like a live version of X-ray, so that she could see the heart as it worked, not frozen in a picture.

Mary Stuart Masterson
She did all these amazing things that we don't have time to show because it's not about Helen Taussig, but she really was a remarkable, remarkable woman, and the more I read about her, the more amazed I was that I'd never heard of her.
