Emma Thompson Says George Michael Gave His Blessing for 'Last Christmas'

Emma Thompson paid a visit to Late Night with Seth Meyers on Tuesday night (October 29) and discussed her new film Last Christmas, which was inspired by the music of George Michael.

The 60-year-old actress worked on the screenplay with her husband Greg Wise and also stars as the character Adelia.

Emma told Seth that George was well aware of the film that has been eight years in the making: “I met George Michael about it two years before he died,” she said. “What a lovely guy. He was an extraordinary man.”

“We had to carry on doing Christmas until February. A nightmare,” Emma said about filming the movie, which stars Emilia Clarke and Henry Golding.
