Part of noted Hollywood royalty, Drew is the grand-daughter of John Barrymore, and the grand-niece of Lionel and Ethel. The young actress is a spokesperson for Cover Girl and Gucci products. She’s also a philanthropist and was named Ambassador Against Hunger for the United Nations World Food Program. In 2007, she received a Star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.
Robert Osborne is set to return to his weekday anchor duties on December 1st. The long-time host left TCM for a couple of months due to undisclosed personal and health reasons.
The acting lineage of Drew Barrymore makes this collaboration a natural fit for the TCM segment known as The Essentials.
