Sophie Thompson has reacted angrily to reports that she and her famous sister Emma Thompson are feuding. Alan Titchmarsh will interview Sophie Thompson, EMMA THOMPSON’S sister, this morning.
Sophie Thompson will appear on ITV this morning to discuss her career with Alan Titchmarsh.
Emma Thompson, the star’s famous sister, is also expected to be mentioned.
The actress has previously discussed her “rivalry” with Emma.
Sophie is a well-known actress who has appeared in EastEnders as well as Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Some may be surprised to learn that the actress is Emma’s younger sister, who starred in Sense and Sensibility.
Phyllida Law and Eric Thompson, both actors, have two children.
Sophie is an Olivier Award-winning actress who has appeared in West End productions such as Company and Into the Woods.
Many will recognize her from the films Persuasion, Emma, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1. She played Stella Crawford on EastEnders from 2006 to 2007.
Despite the fact that she pursued a different career path than her Oscar-winning sister Emma, she once stated that the two had no rivalry.
In a September 2009 interview with the Daily Mail, she denied making such a claim.
“People think there’s a rivalry, but there isn’t,” she clarified.
“I’d never compare myself to her, or her to myself.”
The actress also told the magazine how close she is to her sister.
“We’re tough old birds,” she said, “and I think we both have a lot of Ma in us.”
“She grew up on the outskirts of the war, having been evacuated as a child.”
“I can’t bear remembering her as a scared little girl, but it had an impact on our family.”
“Perhaps we’re all fighters.”
Sophie also told the Metro in March that the two don’t talk much about acting.
When asked about it, she admitted, “Oh, people have such crazy ideas about actors.”
“We don’t really talk about work; we talk about what we’ve seen.”
“Emma has been extremely busy due to the volume of work being produced, which is fantastic.”
“Because film sets are highly controlled environments with strict protocols in place, implementing Covid-safe protocols is simpler than in some scenarios.”
