Being immaculately beautiful often isn’t the only feature that makes you survive the Hollywood glittering world of hard work, jealousy and avidity – but being immaculately beautiful, indisputably talented and fabulously british might help sometimes to make you one of the biggest sensations of all times in a world where money is the best friend and an actress en Vogue as long as she is in the gossip rag. Well, not every is like Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz or Lindsay Lohan – some are still down to earth, pure and natural even though they are famous and a huge star all around the globe.
Emily Olivia Leah Blunt, born 23 February 1983 is one of those immaculate beauties that conquered the world by not being a shallow good looking Hollywood plastic girl, but by being capable of switching into dissimilar roles without losing authenticity, instinctiveness and pureness. She is one of those actresses that are able to play a fashion slave as well as a young queen growing up without losing the slightest bit of elegance, talent and sophistication.
When Emily was a A-Level student she had her professional debut in a musical called Bliss, which was written by Paul Sellar and performed in 2000 at the Edinburgh Fringe. From this moment on she showed capability of growing into various roles such as an ancient British warrior-queen in Boudica or a troubled child in Gideon’s Daughter for which she won a Golden Globe.
After landing the role as fashion enslaved victim to a fashion editor in the box-office success The Devil wears Prada, which is an adaption on the book by Lauren Weisberger and also an interpretation of her days working for US Vogue editor in chief Anna Wintour, Blunt also took part in the independent drama Irresistible alongside Susan Sarandon and in 2009 taking the leading part in The Young Victoria playing Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, which has been a huge success all around the world and also achieved critical acclaim.
Since Emily had her breakthrough she is without a doubt one of those few big British actresses besides Keira Knightley and Kate Winslet that arrived in Hollywood to stay there as a big shiny star among all the typical All-American girls we are often tired of seeing and hearing. In my mind she is actually one of the best ‘newcomers’ we have seen in a while. When I look back at watching The Devil wear Prada for the first few times I remember myself as always looking at her and being fascinated by her raw talent and her absolute softness in playing incredibly and natural.
In my opinion she is one of the best actresse we have in these times of mass media and horribly bad produced movies, where everyone believes he/she is an incredible actor/actress and where money still can’t buy you any talent – she proves that what is out there is great, fabulous and above all British.
