In 1995 Emily Watson was at the Royal Shakespeare Company and meet Jack Waters. Emily Watson and Jack end up to get married. Then almost ten years later Emily gives birth to their daughter Juliet. This happen back in autumn of 2005. I think the name of their daughter is suppose to have meaning to where Emily Watson and Jack Waters first meet. Not all would be smooth sailing for Emily Watson. She would end up passing up the role of a life time. Jean-Pierra Jeunet wrote the lead character for Emily Watson in Amelie (which was originally titled Emily). Watson choose to pass up the role because she did not want to work in French, and have to be away from home. The role was then passed on to Audrey Tautou, and she went on to be a international super star. Then the same thing would happen in the movie Elizabeth. Shekhar Kapur wanted Emily Watson to play the role of Elizabeth I, but aging she turn it down. The role got passed on to Cate Blanchett and it when on to make her a star. Fool be once, shame on your, fool me twice shame on me. You would think after the way she got her first role (with the main actress turning down the role) she would learn to take big roles like these. Instead she gave them up and made other people bigger starts today then she is.
Overall, Emily Watson is still a great actress. You can take what she has done away from her. She does have a really bad habit of giving up the role of a lifetime. Two of the movies she turn down, turn out to be block busters and make the people who took her role super stars. Of course had she been the one to play the part, it would of gave a different feel to the movie, and maybe the movie would have been viewed differently. Emily Watson will still go on to be a great actress.
