[[caption-width-right:340:Emma Thompson]]
Distinguished British actress, born April 15, 1959, best known for a lot of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merchant_Ivory_Productions Merchant Ivory]] movies, as well as ''Film/DeadAgain'', ''StrangerThanFiction'', ''NannyMcPhee'' and ''Last Chance Harvey''. Introduced [[StephenFry Fry]] to [[HughLaurie Laurie]], thus making her responsible for a veritable English institution. Also almost played [[{{Dogma}} God]] (it was decided that AlanisMorissette would be [[RuleOfFunny funnier]]).

Thompson is also the only person who's won Academy Awards in both screenwriting (''Film/SenseAndSensibility'') and acting (''HowardsEnd''). Compare with BarbraStreisand, LaurenceOlivier, and MichaelDouglas, who also have unusual Oscar combinations.

!!This actress provides examples of:
* OldShame: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nxA0a5G6ccg This]].
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Averted in ''Tutti Frutti'', an eighties [[TheBBC BBC]] [[{{Dramedy}} drama-comedy]] (and by hell does it slide further away from comedy as the series goes on), where she absolutely NAILS the West End/art student Glasgwegian accent.
