Emily Richard (born 25 January 1948) is a British actress and a former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company.
One of three sisters, Richard was born in London, where she attended drama school in 1966, aged 18, but she was asked to leave after a year as she was "too timid". She then sold programmes in theatres in London's West End. Having acquired an agent, her first professional role was as Mole in a theatre production of Toad of Toad Hall. A former member of the BBC Radio Repertory Company, Richard has worked extensively for radio, and once played 'Tess' in Tess of the d'Urbervilles in that medium.
Richard is married to actor Edward Petherbridge, with whom she appeared in Nicholas Nickleby for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1980, as well as in the Lord Peter Wimsey play Busman's Honeymoon (1988), and in Pomp and Circumstance. They have two children, Dora (born 1983) and Arthur Petherbridge (born 1986), and live in West Hampstead.
