The article presents an interview with actress Emma Thompson. The actress commented that she loved her appearance as Nanny McPhee in the motion picture "Nanny McPhee." And she mentioned that it only took an hour to put on the make-up. Thompson's father is the creator of the children's television program "The Magic Roundabout" and her mother is actress Phyllida Law. Her marriage to actor Greg Wise in July 2003 led to snide supposition that the actress created her new look in order to hang onto her handsome young husband. She wrote the screenplay for the motion picture and was thrilled with its success.
