TALK OF THE TOWN: WATCH THIS FACE: Emma Lowndes
Sunday 06 February 2005
It all began when she was "about eight" and her class at school was invited to be in an Opera North production of Carmen. "I remember watching Carmen standing there with her hands on her hips, all confident and mysterious..." Then, after being Head Girl at her Manchester school, studying English at York University ("I wasn't mature enough to go straight to drama school") and three years at Rada, she has built up her career, with several good ingenue roles. She may look like a slight child-woman, but actually "I'm a bit of a Girl Guide," she confides. "I like to get the whole cast out doing activities and sightseeing round London." Look out for her shepherding Janet Suzman and Kim Cattrall around Tower Bridge sometime soon then.
