The Stylist 16: Emilia Fox

Emilia Fox Launches The Disaronno Film Series 5 - Low.jpg

The Silent Witness star is the first person to answer the sixteen questions we plan to ask everyone.

1. When was the last time you hid?

I hide every day! My daughter is 21 months old and hide-and-seek is her favourite game at the moment. She always chooses to hide behind the curtains. My place to hide is in the bath.

2. What’s in your handbag?

An embarrassment of things. I dread the moment when I actually have to find something. Let’s see: lots of make-up in a plastic bag because I recently flew, every receipt from the last month, a Tangle Tease comb, hopefully a wallet, lots of chewing gum and some hairpins. There are always hairpins in there somewhere.

3. Do you have any tattoos, if so what?

Yes, a little outline of a heart on the inside of my middle finger. It was five years ago in LA with a friend and it seemed like a good idea. I had jet lag. They started and I have never felt such searing pain in my life. This is why I have never filled in the outline.

4. Sedan chair: good idea or a bad idea?

Oh, good God! A TERRIBLE idea! I would hate to be carried by other people. It’s out-of-date, uncalled for and embarrassing.

5. What are you most ashamed of?

My lack of organisation. Anything to with my daughter’s life is organised, but I’ve got suitcases that haven’t been properly unpacked for years.

6. Is the world getting better, or worse?

Both. The scientific advances we’re making and the things that will be possible soon are amazing, but there’s also so much destruction and a lack of thought for future generations.

7. Cheese or chocolate?

Cheese.

8. What was your finest hour?

Having Rose, certainly. Although that was more like several hours.

9. What does feminism means to you?

The continuing need for equality of the sexes at work and at home. I am partial to chivalry and an old fashioned gentleman though so I'm not sure how some feminists would feel about me!

10. Which part of your home do you like best?

My attic because it looks out over the garden and a wooded lane on one side and on the other you can see the rooftops of London.

11. What’s guaranteed to make you cry?

Anything to do with love or children. And Kramer V Kramer.

12. What do you dream about at night?

If I’m anxious I dream about spiders, if not I hardly remember them. I do have one recurring dream though. It’s very long and complex and involves the white rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.

13. Complete the sentence: Britain needs more…

Bees and butterflies.

14. Are you a lover or a fighter?

Lover.

15. Have you left the gas on?

Generally I always think I have, yes, although at this moment I’m genuinely thinking it might be a possibility.

16. What question would you like to ask Stylist readers?

What should I be wearing? Give your honest opinion!
