About

Emma Thompson was born in London on April 15 1959 into a family of actors - her father was Eric Thompson who has passed away and her mother, Phyllida Law, has co-starred with Thompson in several films (her sister, Sophie Thompson, 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 Phython members had first met.  She is the only person to have won Academy awards for both acting and writing.  She won Best Actress for Howard's End (1992) and Best Adapted Screenplay for Sense and Sensibility (1995) and has just written the script for the sequel of Nanny McPhee.
