Mortimer is an English actress who has been featured in such films as 'Scream 3', 'Shutter Island', 'Match Point', and 'Lars and the Real Girl'. 
In the July 8, 2010 Guardian article, "Emily Mortimer: 'Secrets Are a Part of All of Our Lives'", she states, "It is brilliant going to the theatre and being forced to sit and listen and think about life. It can be almost a near-religious experience. I'm sounding really over the top now, but as an atheist who lives in this secular world, you never get to sit on your own and think about things. That is as near as it gets."
