People I admire (and who happen to be left-handed) #4

Emma Thompson

Emma Thompson has been part of my life for over twenty years. In fact, the Thompson family has been part of my life since the day I watched The Magic Roundabout on TV. Not only is she an excellent actress and a great presence but she is also an excellent person. I was going to write a lot of stuff on just why she’s a top person but I thought this list would say it better:

  • Action Aid ambassador
  • her work against sex trafficking for the Helen Bamber Foundation – I won’t directly link to the video I am Elena because it really upset me
  • her support for the Global Coalition on Women and AIDS
  • her support for Alone in London
  • her willingness to portray herself as a lesbian and an Ohioan in Ellen
  • her support for actresses and eating
  • naming her daughter Gaia
  • she usually sports a short hair style
  • writing the best big screen adaptation of a Jane Austen novel, Sense and Sensibility
  • being in two of my favourite TV series from the 80s, Tutti Frutti and Fortunes of War
  • being absolutely the only redeeming thing in Love, Actually
