Faye Dunaway, the Academy Award-winning star of 1976's Network, will make two appearances at the upcoming TCM Classic Film Festival.

The actress, best known for her performances in 1967's Bonnie and Clyde, 1974's Chinatown and Network, will participate in a sit-down interview about her life and career in front of a live audience of festival passholders at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Hollywood, and she also will be on hand to introduce a screening of Network, for which she won the best actress Oscar 40 years ago.

"Faye Dunaway has had an extraordinarily successful career spanning nearly six decades," says TCM host Robert Osborne, "working alongside some of the best in the industry such as Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson and Robert Redford. She is one of the great beauties and magical leading ladies of film. It’s going to be a great treat for our fans to hear from her first-hand about her extraordinary life and career."

Each year, the fest features an extended interview taped in front of a live audience for telecast on TCM under the Live from the TCM Classic Film Festival banner. Past guests: Luise Rainer (2010), Peter O'Toole (2011), Kim Novak (2012), Eva Marie Saint (2013), Alan Arkin (2014) and Sophia Loren (2015).

This year's fest, which is set to run April 28-May 1 in Hollywood, will open with a 40th anniversary screening of All the President's Men. The event previously announced appearances by Gina Lollobrigida, Anna Karina, Carl Reiner, Elliott Gould, Stacy Keach, John Singleton and Saint — and that it will host a special handprints and footprints ceremony for Francis Ford Coppola.
