The 2011 TIME 100

Meet the most influential people in the world. They are artists and activists, reformers and researchers, heads of state and captains of industry. Their ideas spark dialogue and dissent and sometimes even revolution. Welcome to this year's TIME 100

Rebecca Eaton
TV Producer
By Gillian Anderson

I was introduced to Rebecca Eaton while doing a PBS Masterpiece event for Dickens' Bleak House. First impression: shock of silver-white hair, brassy American gumption and a personality that enters the room before she does. You instantly know she means business, which in Rebecca's mind is what she enjoys most in the world.
