Johnny English strikes again (2018)

There are so many actors extremely talented at dramatic roles but few can be funny and do drama. Emma is tremendously gifted because she can do both, thanks to her versatility in acting.

She is a self-taught comedian and she became a member of the Footlights troupe at Cambridge University.

Her first professional role was in the comedy “The tall guy”, in which there were funny scenes.

So we know that she easily switches from a dramatic role to a comic one.

In “Johnny English strikes again” she stars as the UK Prime Minister, playing hilarious scenes with Rowan Atkinson. In the following clip, I particularly like her funny face as she is leaving the head office 😁

Johnny English strikes again- Emma Thompson

Did you know Emma is not only an Oscar-winning actress and screenwriter but also a skillful writer? She has written many children’s book about the most famous rabbit on the planet, Peter Rabbit.

Since she was a child, she loved Beatrix Potter and her simple style, so she admitted “when Mr Peter Rabbit invited me to write a further tale, I was honoured” and the first exciting adventure of Peter Rabbit, written with a dry humour in 2012, proved to be a big hit and it was featured in the “New York Times Bestsellers list” twice!

In The Christmas tale of Peter Rabbit, Peter has a new friend, William the turkey.

The story is inspired by a real turkey named William, that Emma met on Beatrix Potter’s farm in the Lake District.

Their meeting was really fun 😂
