Emma Thompson and…

… Paul Giamatti!

Paul Giamatti

Paul Giamatti is an American actor and producer. His paternal grandfather’s family were Italian emigrants and the family surname was originally spelled “Giammattei“.

So far Emma and Giamatti have acted together in a single movie but they have shown great chemistry and they have been proved to be a well assorted couple.

I hope that in the future they are planning to make more films together because I really love Giamatti’s acting.

On Saving Mr Banks he plays Ralph, Travers’ chauffeur, and the two, after some initial diffidence, gradually develop a great empathy so much so that in the end she allows him to call her by name, despite her dislike of Americans, except Ralph, evidently.

Ralph with his politeness penetrates the depths of her heart while for all the others she is unpleasant and high-handed.

For me one of the most touching scenes is that in which he takes her to the airport and they say goodbye. Great acting and lots of feeling from both actors!
