EMMA THOMPSON (Captain Amelia) gives a witty and commanding vocal performance as the fearless feline captain of the Legacy, who sails into danger and an unlikely relationship with bashful Doctor Doppler.

Thompson was born in London to Eric Thompson, a theatre director and writer, and Phyllida Law, an actress. She read English at Cambridge and was invited to join the school's long-standing Footlights comedy troupe, which elected her Vice President. While still a student she co-directed Cambridge's first all-woman revue "Woman's Hour,” made her television debut on BBC-TV's "Friday Night, Saturday Morning,” and debuted on radio performing on BBC Radio's "Injury Time.”

Throughout the 1980s Thompson appeared frequently on British TV, including widely acclaimed recurring roles on the Granada TV series "Alfresco,” BBC's "Election Night Special” and "The Crystal Cube” (the latter written by fellow Cambridge alums Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie), and a hilarious one-off role as upper-class twit Miss Money Sterling on "The Young Ones.” In 1985 Channel 4 offered her her own TV special, "Up for Grabs,” and in 1988 she wrote and recorded her own BBC series simply called "Thompson.” Thompson continued to pursue an active stage career concurrently with her TV and radio work, appearing in "A Sense of Nonsense” touring England in 1982, the self-penned "Short Vehicle” at the Edinburgh Festival in 1983, "Me and My Girl” first at Leicester and then moving to London's West End in 1985, and "Look Back in Anger” at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue in 1989. Her feature film debut came in 1988, starring opposite Jeff Goldblum in the comedy "The Tall Guy.” She then played Katherine in Kenneth Branagh's movie directing debut "Henry V” and went on to star opposite Branagh in three of his subsequent directorial efforts, "Dead Again” (1991), "Peter's Friends” (1992) and "Much Ado About Nothing” (1993).

In 1992 Thompson appeared in her first Merchant-Ivory production, causing a sensation with her portrayal of Margaret Schlegel in the team's adaptation of E.M. Forster's "Howards End.” Sweeping the Best Actress category wherever it was considered, the performance netted her a BAFTA Award, Los Angeles Film Critics Award, New York Film Critics Award, Golden Globe and eventually Academy Award®. Her other films include "The Remains of the Day” (1993, Academy Award® nomination for Best Actress), "In the Name of the Father” (1993, Academy Award® nomination for Best Supporting Actress), "Junior” (1994), "Carrington” (1995), "The Winter Guest” (1997) and "Maybe Baby” (2000). She has also starred in three features directed by Mike Nichols: "Primary Colors” (1998), "Wit” (2001, a Golden Globe-nominated performance) and the forthcoming "Angels in America.”

In 1995 Thompson adapted for film and starred in Jane Austen's "Sense and Sensibility,” directed by Ang Lee. She won an Academy Award® for her adaptation, and for her performance won a Best Actress award from BAFTA and was nominated for a Golden Globe and an Academy Award®.
