Emma Thompson was born in London on April 15, 1959, into a family of actors - her father was 'Eric Thompson (I)' (qv), who has passed away, and her mother, 'Phyllida Law' (qv), has co-starred with Thompson in several films (her sister, 'Sophie Thompson (I)' (qv), is an actor as well). Thompson's wit was earlier cultivated by a cheerful, clever, creative family atmosphere, and she was a popular and successful student. She attended Cambridge University, studying English Literature, and was part of the university's Footlights Group, the famous group where, previously, many of the Monty Python members had first met. Thompson graduated in 1980 and embarked on her career in entertainment, beginning with stints on BBC radio and touring with comedy shows. She soon got her first major break in television, on the comedy skit program _"Alfresco" (1983)_ (qv), writing and performing along with her fellow Footlights Group alums 'Stephen Fry (I)' (qv) and 'Hugh Laurie' (qv). She also worked on other TV comedy review programs in the mid-1980s, occasionally with some of her fellow Footlights alums, and often with actor 'Robbie Coltrane' (qv). Thompson found herself collaborating again with Fry in 1985, this time in his stage adaptation of the play "Me and My Girl" in London's West End, in which she had a leading role, playing Sally Smith. The show was a success and she received favorable reviews, and the strength of her performance led to her casting as the lead in the BBC television miniseries _"Fortunes of War" (1987)_ (qv), in which Thompson and her co-star, 'Kenneth Branagh' (qv), play an English ex-patriate couple living in Eastern Europe as the Second World War erupts. Thompson won a BAFTA award for her work on the program. She married Branagh in 1989, continued to work with him professionally, and formed a production company with him. In the late 80s and early 90s, she starred in a string of well-received and successful television and film productions, most notably her lead role in the Merchant-Ivory production of _Howards End (1992)_ (qv), which confirmed her ability to carry a movie on both sides of the Atlantic and appropriately showered her with trans-Atlantic honors - both an Oscar and a BAFTA award. Since then, Thompson has continued to move effortlessly between the art film world and mainstream Hollywood, though even her Hollywood roles tend to be in more up-market productions. She continues to work on television as well, but is generally very selective about which roles she takes. She writes for the screen as well, such as the screenplay for 'Ang Lee' (qv)'s _Sense and Sensibility (1995)_ (qv), in which she also starred as Elinor Dashwood, and the teleplay adaptation of 'Margaret Edson' (qv)'s acclaimed play _Wit (2001) (TV)_ (qv), in which she also starred. Thompson is known for her sophisticated, skillful, though her critics say somewhat mannered, performances, and of course for her arch wit, which she is unafraid to point at herself - she is a fearless self-satirist. Thompson and Branagh divorced in 1994, and Thompson is now married to fellow actor 'Greg Wise (I)' (qv), who had played Willoughby in 'Ang Lee' (qv)'s _Sense and Sensibility (1995)_ (qv). Thompson and Wise have one child, Gaia, born in 1999.

-   "Ken and Em" by Ian Shuttleworth

-   "I have a nervous breakdown in the film and in one scene I get to stand at the top of the stairs waving an empty sherry bottle which is, of course, a typical scene from my daily life, so isn't much of a stretch." -- on her role in the Harry Potter film.

-   I can't stand this new culture of the instant disposable celebrity. It's all so vulgar.

-   I am who I am and there is nothing I can do about that.

-   I have periods of intense activity, then stop. My ideal is to work hard in the morning until I pick Gaia up from school. Just putting an empty square in my diary seems to make a space in my head, too. You have to be very good at saying no.

-   'My appearance has changed a lot over the years, but it has far more to do with how I feel about being a woman. I've never thought of myself as vain. When I was at Cambridge, I shaved my head and wore baggy clothes. What I did was to desexualise myself. It was partly to do with the feminism of that time: militant and grungy. That's all changed now, though I don't think it is liberating to get your tits out. I don't hold with that. But I am much more comfortable with being a woman now than I was in my twenties.

-   But when I lose my temper, I find it difficult to forgive myself. I feel I've failed. I can be calm in a crisis, in the face of death or things that hurt badly. I don't get hysterical, which may be masochistic of me. But in small matters, I am not calm at all. My worst quality is impatience.

-   I mind having to look pretty, that's what I mind, because it is so much more of an effort.

-   "'Liam Neeson' (qv), quite frankly, is sex on legs. Always has been".

-   Children are much more understanding of the suddenness and arbitrariness of death than we are. The old fairy tales contain a lot of that, and we've stolen from them, just as they stole from Greek myth, which has that same mixture of pre-Christian chaos.

-   I've realized that in all the great stories, even if there's a happily-ever-after ending, there's something sad.

-   Acting simply cannot be about how you look. It would be very difficult to make a film where you have to be beautiful in every shot. You have to put so much effort into it; you have to hold your head at particular angles, put the light in a certain way and I don't like acting like that. I like to act unconscious of how I look.

-   The first time I was nominated, I didn't know anything about the Oscars. That was almost 15 years ago. I just did Oscar week and enjoyed it very much because I was with my mum. Even so, each time it's happened I've come down with some ghastly infection. It is overwhelming for people. It has nothing to do really at all with your performance. It comes down to if you get an Oscar for your film, then the revenue for your film goes up. They mean a great deal. I can't deny it.

-   I'm very lucky I write as well. I don't see how I could be as effective a mother as I'd like to be if I had to go away and act all the time. So I've sort of pulled back from acting, which is fine, because I've found over the years - and this was a surprise to me - that I can get the same kind of creative satisfaction from writing as I have heretofore gotten out of acting. It's very encouraging, really.

-   [1992] We just did Hamlet with Sir 'John Gielgud' (qv) and it was so luvvy it wasn't true.

-   (March 2007) Writing the script for the sequel of _Nanny McPhee (2005)_ (qv).

-   (1995) Release of the book, "Ken & Em: A Biography of Kenneth Branagh and Emma Thompson" by 'Ian Shuttleworth (I)' (qv).
