Emma Thompson wiki British Actress.

"Emma Thompson is best known as an award-winning actress, but her talents go much further than that. Writer, director, comedienne, campaigner - she has the distinction of having won Oscars both for acting and for screenwriting, for Howard’s End and Sense and Sensibility respectively.

"In 2005, she combined those talents to make Nanny McPhee - a delightful children' s film. Emma and the film's co-star Colin Firth agreed that the proceeds from ticket sales for its West End premiere should go to the Refugee Council. In previous years she has supported our Day Centre with very generous donations that have allowed us to hold our annual festive party for clients. And as well as financial support, Emma has often come along to help in person. " [1]
