'Incredibly special': Joely on working with mum Vanessa

Wednesday October 26, 2011

Joely Richardson has revealed how much it has meant to her to be able to share the role of Queen Elizabeth I with her mother Vanessa Redgrave.

The star was talking the premiere of new film Anonymous in London's Leicester Square. 

Elegant in a figure-hugging black lace Marchesa gown, Joely smiled for the cameras whilst signing autographs.

In the film, Vanessa plays Queen Elizabeth as an older woman, while her daughter plays the royal as a young princess.

"It was incredibly special," said the Nip/Tuck star of the collaboration.

"As a child growing up and watching her play Mary Queen of Scots and Glenda Jackson play Elizabeth, I never would have known that one day the two of us would be playing Elizabeth."
