Emily Blunt is a Hollywood film actress who came into limelight after her role in the comedy film The Devil Wears Prada. The charming British woman managed to charm not only film critics and viewers but also such masters as Judy Dench and Meryl Streep. Not many people know that Blunt got involved in acting as a child, and suffered from an unpleasant ailment – stuttering. Now she is in demand at the dream factory, and in her homeland, she is rightfully called the British screen queen.
The gorgeous actress, who was destined to conquer her native Britain, and then the whole world, was born on February 23, 1983, in central London, in Wandsworth. The girl’s full name is Emily Olivia Leah Blunt, she is the second child of four children of Oliver and Joanna. Oliver Blunt is a British highest caste QC and Joanna is a former actress and English teacher. The older sister’s name is Felicity, she became a literary agent in the future. Later, two more children were born – Suzanne and Sebastian. As adults, the younger sister went to veterinary medicine, and her brother, like Emily, mastered the acting profession. Her uncle Crispin Blunt was elected to the British Parliament. Grandpa Peter Blunt is a retired major general.
Parents tried to give their children all the best. The guys studied at prestigious schools. Emily was fond of music and loved to ride horses, but at the age of 10, she suddenly began to stutter. Visits to speech therapists did not give any result, meditation, relaxation, and treatment with psychoanalysts – everything was useless. The doctors gave up: the formerly funny and sociable girl became a closed shy child.
To somehow help her daughter, the mother began to learn with her small scenes from the plays in which she once played. It was the theatrical art that turned out to be that miracle cure for the disease and determined the girl’s choice. Subsequently, the actress will say so about it.
