Go ahead, ask Mar­ilu Hen­ner any­thing

Waterloo Region Record - - Arts & Life -

It’s best not to get into an ar­gu­ment about past events with Mar­ilu Hen­ner. You will def­i­nitely lose. The ac­tress is hard­wired with the abil­ity to in­stantly re­call facts that are decades old. “What I have is known as Highly Su­pe­rior Au­to­bi­o­graph­i­cal Mem­ory. It’s like a fancy name,” she says, laugh­ing. “They don’t call it hy­per­thymesia any­more be­cause that sounded like a dis­ease.” Hen­ner, who found fame with the sit­com “Taxi,” has ba­si­cally su­pe­rior re­call. “To this day, my sib­lings will say, ‘Mar­ilu, do a week from our child­hood.’ And I’ll just pick a ran­dom week and go through all the days that we went through,” she says.
