 English actress and screenwriter who was noted for her sophisticated and witty performances and later for her award-winning scripts.

      Thompson, the daughter of actors Eric Thompson and Phyllida Law, grew up in a theatrical household that gave her an appreciation for the ridiculous. While studying English literature at the University of Cambridge, she performed with the comedy troupe Footlights. Soon after graduating in 1980, she ventured into drama, distinguishing herself opposite Kenneth Branagh (Branagh, Kenneth) in the British Broadcasting Corporation's television miniseries Fortunes of War (1987). The couple became frequent collaborators and married in 1989 (divorced 1995). Thompson starred with Branagh in Henry V (1989), which he directed, and followed with two more Branagh-directed films, the thriller Dead Again (1991), in which the couple played dual roles, and the sentimental comedy Peter's Friends (1992).

 In 1992 Thompson portrayed a pragmatic bohemian who befriends a dying woman and later marries her widower (played by Anthony Hopkins (Hopkins, Sir Anthony)) in Howards End. For her performance, Thompson won both an Academy Award and a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award for best actress. In 1993 she again starred opposite Branagh in a film adaptation of Shakespeare's play Much Ado About Nothing, in which she played Beatrice to Branagh's Benedick. The breezy, colourful Much Ado won the praise of critics and attracted an unusually large and diverse audience. That year Thompson also played a 1930s housekeeper in The Remains of the Day.

      In 1995 Thompson wrote and starred in Sense and Sensibility, based on Jane Austen (Austen, Jane)'s novel. The film was a critical and commercial success, and Thompson won an Academy Award for best adapted screenplay and a BAFTA Award for best actress. In 2001 she wrote the script for and starred in the television adaptation of the stage drama Wit, which centres on a college professor with terminal cancer. In the television miniseries Angels in America (2003), based on Tony Kushner's play about AIDS in the 1980s, she played a homeless woman.

      Thompson's later work includes such notable films as Love Actually (2003); Nanny McPhee (2005), which she also wrote; Stranger Than Fiction (2006); and several film adaptations of J.K. Rowling (Rowling, J.K.)'s popular Harry Potter series. In 2008 she starred in Brideshead Revisited, based on Evelyn Waugh (Waugh, Evelyn)'s novel, and in Last Chance Harvey, a romantic comedy set in London.
