Emma Thompson

on seeking asylum

Emma Thompson is one of the world’s most respected talents for her versatility in acting as well as screenwriting. She is the sole artist thus far to have received an Academy Award for both acting and screenwriting. She has more than 75 acting and screenwriting credits including award winning roles in Howards End, The Remains of the Day, Nanny McPhee, Sense and Sensibility, Love Actually and Saving Mr. Banks. Emma has been at the forefront of the Helen Bamber Foundation since it was established in 2005, first as Chair of Trustees and now as President. She co-curated “Journey,” an interactive art installation which used seven transport containers to illustrate the brutal and harrowing experiences of women sold into the sex trade.
