What is a fanlisting?

According to The Fanlistings Network: "A fanlisting is simply an online list of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join.  There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country.  Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are); they are just a place where you can sign up with other fans.  TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not official) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting the fans."

To Walk on Water

Emma Thompson is one of Britain's finest actresses, comedians and screenwriters. Her career started during her time studying at Cambridge, where she was part of the Footlights, alongside Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry and Tony Slattery.

Since then, she has started in a whole host of well-known films and stacked up an impressive array of prestigious award wins, and many more nominations. It is hard to pick out a film for which Emma is best known, as her resume is full and varied: Howard's End, Much Ado About Nothing, The Remains of the Day, Sense and Sensibility (for which she also wrote the screenplay), Love Actually and Last Chance Harvey are but a few. More recently, she's starred as Sybill Tewlawney in the Harry Potter films and as the mytsterious Nanny McPhee.

I've been a fan of Emma's ever since I first saw her act. She's brilliantly funny, as a lot of her roles will reflect; but she's shown that she can do serious too. Her portrayl of Karen in Love Actually is a stand out for me; especially the part where she finds out her husband has bought a very expensive necklace for another woman and she stands in the middle of her bedroom, trying to cry without leaving any traces of her tears. My other favourite role of Emma's is Elinor Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility; gentle, strong and funny, Emma brings Jane Austen's magnificent character to life so beautifully. Emma's performances are always so human and so real, she blows me away every single time.
