Meryl Streep has been nominated for more Academy Awards than any other actor in the history of the Oscars.  Her roles ranged from the drama of "Silkwood" to the romance of "The Bridges of Madison County" to the musical comedy of "Mamma Mia."  But Friday she took on the role of mentor in a question-and-answer session with some Master's acting students at U-T.  She spoke with KUT's Ian Crawford before the session.
