Emma Thompson é uma premiada atriz e roteirista britânica. Citada como uma das melhores atrizes britânicas da sua geração, ela é conhecida por suas representações de mulheres reticentes em dramas de épocas e adaptações literárias, frequentemente atuando personagens altivos ou matronais com um senso de ironia.

Nascida em Paddington, Londres, filha do ator britânico Erick Thompson e da atriz escocesa Phyllida Law, ela é irmã da atriz Sophie Thompson. Emma foi educada na Camden School for Girls e Newnham College, University of Cambridge, onde ela tornou-se o primeiro membro feminino da trupe Footlights. Depois de aparecer em muitos programas de comédia, ela alcançou a fama em 1987 em duas séries de TV da BBC, Tutti Frutti e Fortunes of War, ganhando o prêmio BAFTA de melhor atriz por seu trabalho em ambos. Seu primeiro papel em filmes foi a antagônica Jeff Goldblum em 1989, na comédia romântica The Tall Guy, e no começo da década de 1990 ela frequentemente colaborou com seu então marido Kenneth Branagh, ator e diretor, aparecendo juntos nos palcos em A Midsummer Night's Dream e King Lear e em filmes como Dead Again , Peter's Friends e Much Ado About Nothing .

Em 1993 ganhou o Oscar de Melhor Atriz por sua atuação no filme Howards End.

„Four a. m., having just returned from an evening at the Golden Spheres, which despite the inconveniences of heat, noise and overcrowding was not without its pleasures. Thankfully, there were no dogs and no children. The gowns were middling. There was a good deal of shouting and behavior verging on the profligate, however, people were very free with their compliments and I made several new acquaintances. There was Lindsay Doran of Mirage, wherever that might be, who is largely responsible for my presence here, an enchanting companion about whom too much good cannot be said. Mr. Ang Lee, of foreign extraction, who most unexpectedly appeared to understand me better than I understand myself. Mr. James Shamis, a most copiously erudite person and Miss Kate Winslet, beautiful in both countenance and spirit. Mr. Pat Doyle, a composer and a Scot, who displayed the kind of wild behaviour one has learned to expect from that race. Mr. Mark Kenton, an energetic person with a ready smile who, as I understand it, owes me a great deal of money. [Breaks character, smiles. ] TRUE!! [Back in character. ] Miss Lisa Henson of Columbia, a lovely girl and Mr. Garrett Wiggin, a lovely boy. I attempted to converse with Mr. Sydney Pollack, but his charms and wisdom are so generally pleasing, that it proved impossible to get within ten feet of him. The room was full of interesting activity until 11 p. m. when it emptied rather suddenly. The lateness of the hour is due, therefore, not to the dance, but to the waiting in a long line for a horseless carriage of unconscionable size. The modern world has clearly done nothing for transport.“
