Friday Night Dinner
There must be something funny pumping through Tamsin Greig’s veins. The british actress is hilarious as Jackie Goodman in Friday Night dinner (2011-current) and the 48-year-old’s adolescent sense of humour leads to loads of misunderstandings in the house. but don’t assume that Tamsin can only tickle your funny bone – she’s loved Shakespeare from a young age and is a patron of the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Stand Up For Shakespeare manifest in british schools. Here’s more on laugh-a-lot Tam…
before Tamsin started her acting career in 1996, she worked as an administrator for the charity Family Planning Association in 1995. She even studied to be a receptionist in 1996 but never completed the course. She’s been married to british actor Richard Leaf (Hannibal Lecter’s dad in 2007 movie Hannibal Rising) since 1997 and they have three kids: Roxie Joy, Jakob Zebedee and Nathanael Zephaniah. in a 1997 interview, Tamsin joked that, once married, people would know her as mrs T Leaf (you know, like the hot beverage…). Tamsin loves radio – and we don’t mean listening in to her favourite shows. Since 1997, she’s been the voice of debbie Aldridge in long-running bbC radio soap The Archers (1951-current). Tamsin became famous in the UK for her role as Fran Katzenjammer in the comedy black books (2000-2004). in 2011, that fame went global when she was cast as scriptwriter beverly Lincoln in the Hollywood-based satire Episodes (2011-current) alongside Friends (19942004) star matt Leblanc. The former vegetarian craved pork sausages when she was pregnant. “i began to have dreams about pork. i’d wake up salivating over sausages. my husband said he would buy me some very fine ham. i ate the lot and i couldn’t get enough,” she revealed in 2006.
Tamsin says that she looks like a puffin. We
think she’s pretty.
