Emily Watson is one of those rare, highly versatile actresses that plays such a wide variety of roles – from a private eye to a housemaid to a dead bride and everything in between – that she literally defies typecasting. Two of her most memorable recent roles include Tammy, the assistant to Philip Seymour Hoffman’s Caden Cotard in SYNECDOCHE, NEW YORK (2008) and Margaret Humphreys, a Nottingham social worker in the critically acclaimed ORANGES AND SUNSHINE (2010). I, along with everyone here at Sundance, am eagerly awaiting her next big role alongside Dominic West (The Wire) in APPROPRIATE ADULT, the upcoming Sundance Channel Original Mini-Series, airing this Fall.
