Emma Thompson recently joined BAFTA to discuss her “Life In Pictures” and we have the highlights for you. To get you in the mood, here are a few little teasers:
On seeing a show reel of her career highlights – “It’s all down to the teeth.”
She “did consider being a hospital administrator”.
Of her role in Howards End – “It’s the only time I’ve written to somebody to say I really do know this woman, and I can play her. Please let me”.
“I could have been handing him the ark of the covenant” – Realising the power of her first Oscar…And getting it back home through airport security.
Working with Arnold Schwarzenegger – “He was the first orange person I had ever met!”
Why Saving Mr Banks was “one of the best scripts I’ve read in a long time.”
