    Marion Edwards
    President of International TV, Fox

    She oversees international licensing of 20th Century Fox movies and TV shows, including free and pay TV, first-run series and digital. In 2012, her division saw revenue rise to its highest levels.

    Moment I knew I wanted to work in the business: I went to the movies all the time growing up in Pocatello, Idaho. There wasn't a lot going on, so they were my windows to the world.

    When I leave work each day, I can't wait to: See my husband and French bulldog. He's sort of like a bowling ball with legs.

    Favorite way to unwind on the weekend: Work in my garden.

    Most surprising song on my iPod: The music from the documentary Searching for Sugar Man by Rodriguez.

    Totally starstruck around: I spend much of my time trying to avoid contact with celebrities.

    What I'd tell my 22-year-old self about working in Hollywood: "Get a life."

    When my relatives are confused about what I do, I tell them: My daughter, after coming with me on Bring Your Daughter to Work Day: "Oh, now I know what you do. You yell at people on the phone."
