Behind the Cover: Emma Thompson, December/January 2013
In the latest issue of Zoomer magazine, Emma Thompson, 54, makes wellies look posh – pairing them with high fashion pieces while posing effortlessly near her parent’s cottage in Scotland. You can read more about what Thompson has been up to in the December/January issue – on newsstands now. For now, get a glimpse at the actress’s experience on set and read some of what she told editor Kim Izzo over a cup of tea.
Emma talks about the gorgeous landscape in Scotland where the cover and accompanying images were shot. “My mom and dad bought that place when I was 15, no electricity, no running water, we take water up the hill, no heating, no nothing,” she explains. “So we live in rustic harmony up there for 3-4 months a year. The landscape is amazing.”
As for the shoot itself, Thompson appears serene and elegant in an array of designer clothes, sometimes even wading in the river. I tell her it looked like a very relaxed shoot. “We had great fun,” she agrees. “Mind you about 5 pm the midges came out and I was wearing something that had holes cut out in it and my back was covered in bites and I finally said, ‘Nick, I can’t stand here in the foliage anymore.’ It was like one of those ancient Indian tortures where you’re pegged out for the bity insects.”
