Movie Fact #789 – March 13th, 2015:

In the 1992 film “Howards End”, based upon the novel of the same name by author E. M. Forster originally published in 1910, actress Jemma Redgrave plays the character Evie Wilcox who is the daughter of the character Ruth Wilcox (Played by Vanessa Redgrave). This last name is not a coincidence.

Jemma Redgrave is Vanessa Regrave’s niece off-screen. This is the only time they have shared the screen, although not on stage. Jemma did act with her aunt Vanessa on stage in Russian playwright Anton Chekhov’s “Three Sisters” in 1990, a production in which the third sister was just happened to have been played by Vanessa’s sister Lynn Redgrave. A family that acts together stays together.
