The double Academy Award winner discusses how advocating for refugees before UNHCR has changed her perspective.
With an acting career of more than 30 years, Cate Blanchett is considered one of the best actresses of her generation. But she also plays important non-fictional roles.
In 2016, Blanchett became a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR.
Since then, he has traveled to Bangladesh, where he met Rohingya Muslims fleeing persecution in Myanmar; Lebanon, where she met Syrians forced from their homes by the war; and most recently to Jordan, which hosts more than 743,000 refugees.
We caught up with her to talk about UN operations and how the refugees she met changed her perspective.
