Emma Chambers, playing Hugh Grant's sister "Honey," turns in a charming performance in Notting Hill.
While watching her in that film last night, I was convinced I'd seen her in something else before -- but I can't figure out what it could have been. Still can't. She seems to have found fame in the Vicor of Dibley, but I've never watched that.
I think what was really going on was that she was reminding me powerfully of Claudie Blakely. I convinced myself I was watching Blakely in Notting Hill and they just didn't credit her for the role. Kidding. But seriously, these two look alike! Their eyes, noses, teeth, even a dimple. Dead-ringers -- though about 10 years apart in age.
Oh, and as a side note, if you haven't seen it lately, you haven't seen it at all -- give Notting Hill a pop into the dvd player. You won't regret it. Funny, charming and romantic, a wonderful way to spend an evening.
