Actress and filmmaker Isabella Rossellini addressed the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) class of 2010 at commencement ceremonies in Savannah and Atlanta.

Rossellini spoke to close to 1,650 graduates at SCAD's 30th Savannah commencement ceremony and later addressed more than 250 graduates at SCAD Atlanta's fourth commencement ceremony at the Georgia World Congress Center. SCAD is among the more respected comprehensive art and design universities in the world, offering more degree programs and specializations than any other similar university.

"Art, inspiration, and the best ideas come from doing and not merely thinking or fearing," said Rossellini. "Don't discriminate. Just do."

She has put these words into action in her own career. In January 2010, Rossellini was in Italy to make a film "La Solitudine dei Numeri Primi." In April, she was in London for the film Late Bloomers, in which she co-stars with William Hurt. Her latest Sundance Channel series, Seduce Me, is about animal courtship strategies. She is also writing a one-hour special for the Discovery Channel.

Rossellini is the daughter of Academy Award-winning Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman and Italian film director Roberto Rossellini. She was the face of Lancome for 14 years. In addition, Rossellini has appeared in more than 40 films including Blue Velvet and Death Becomes Her.
