Joely Richardson gained worldwide recognition thanks to her astonishing acting skills. Hailing from a family of entertainers (her parents are Vanessa Redgrave and Tony Richardson), her career choice was rather predictable as well as the one of her elder sister Natasha.
Being only three, Joely made a big screen debut in her dad’s film The Charge of the Light Brigade. In youth, she considered becoming a professional tennis player, but the genes turned out to be stronger and Richardson continued the family tradition. The celebrity reached major success as a television performer. She starred in The Tudors, Emerald City plus Nip/Tuck series and gained two Golden Globe nominations for the latter.
As to her movie credits, they comprise 101 Dalmatians, The Patriot, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Endless Love and Red Sparrow. Besides, Joely Richardson appeared in some of her mother’s projects, including Wetherby and The Fever.
On January 10, 1992, Joely got hitched to film producer Tim Bevan. Later that year, their only daughter Daisy drew her first breath. In 2001, their marriage was dissolved. Previously, Richardson had an affair with Archie Stirling, which ruined his marriage with Diana Rigg. And later, she was romantically linked to other famed men, including John Hensley and Jamie Theakston.
A curious fact: both Joely and her mom portrayed a queen who was beheaded. Richardson had a part of Marie Antoinette in The Affair of the Necklace while Vanessa starred in Mary, Queen of Scots.
