When I first started out, I was lucky enough to meet Jack Lemmon who encouraged me to become an actor. He subsequently became a great mentor in my life. Jack had a phrase that he used all the time that I’ve now adopted as my own. He believed that if you’ve been successful in your chosen path, if you’ve been able to realize your ambition, then you are obligated to: “Send the elevator back down”
That’s why I’ve set up The Kevin Spacey Foundation (KSF).
We discover, fund and co-produce transatlantic musical, dance, theater and film projects.
As mentors, advocates and educators we support an array of emerging artists and teachers, as well as working with schools to improve theatrical understanding.
