British actress Emma Thompson wears many titles like a boss lady. She's a screenwriter, activist, author, comedian, and one of the most acclaimed stars from the Hollywood space. Over the years, we've seen her in numerous films, taking up challenging roles and proving that she's here to slay. Emma is moreover known for her wit and the way she speaks (in real and reel life). She has always managed to grab the attention of the audience and so on the occasion of her born day today (April 15), we would like to flash five of her best roles until now. Disney Might Rope In Emma Thompson Alongside Emma Stone for Action Prequel ‘Cruella’.
Howards End (1992)
This film is one of Thompson's best works as it has sex, sophisticatedness, forgiveness, hate and more. She essayed the role of Margaret Schlegel and stunned the masses. She even won a BAFTA and Oscar for this movie and so it tops our list. Watch!
Sense and Sensibility (1995)
Up next, we have a movie that has a fantastic message for all women out there. Sense and Sensibility is a lovely adaptation of one of Jane Austen’s earliest novels that saw Emma (Elinor Dashwood) on the route to becoming independent for the sake of her family in a restrictive society. The screenplay of this one was also penned by Thompson.
Harry Potter (2004, 2007, 2011)
In a small but crucial role, Emma has been part of the Harry Potter franchise as the Divination professor Sybil Trelawney. Well, she might be one of the most irritating professors in the HP universe (except perhaps, Professor Umbridge, but that’s another tale), however, she essayed the hippy and confused role with a lot of confidence, making the character memorable.
