London Live asked Emma Thompson about the Oscars diversity row at this year’s London Evening Standard British Film Awards and to the question: can you see the diversity issue changing, she replied, unequivocally, “No, no, no… No!!!”

She added: “We just have to write the stories and make them, encourage it and get behind it. You’ve got to get into drama schools and schools, find people who want to do this work and give them the opportunity to do it, that’s more likely to get that opportunity here really – and make the stories.”
