Wes Studi in Conversation with Alexander Nemerov

From small-town Oklahoma native to internationally acclaimed actor and musician, Wes Studi credits his passion and multi-faceted background for his powerful character portrayals that forever changed a Hollywood stereotype. Drawing from his rich life experience, Studi has moved audiences with unforgettable performances in Dances with Wolves, The Last of the Mohicans, Geronimo: An American Legend, and Heat, as well as James Cameron's Avatar and Paul Weitz’s Being Flynn. Most recently Studi starred opposite Christian Bale in the critically acclaimed Hostiles, directed by Scott Cooper, with whom he is collaborating on another project this fall.

Breaking new ground, Studi has brought fully-developed Native American characters to the screen, and then took his craft a step further, highlighting the success of Native Americans in non-traditional roles.

Alexander Nemerov is the Carl and Marilyn Thoma Provostial Professor in the Arts and Humanities and Chair of the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University.
