Emilia Rose Elizabeth Fox (born 31 July 1974) is an English actress, known for her role as Dr. Nikki Alexander on BBC crime drama Silent Witness, having joined the cast in 2004 following the departure of Amanda Burton. She also appeared as Morgause in the BBC's Merlin beginning in the programme's second series.


Fox was born in Hammersmith, London, England. She comes from a thespian family — her mother is actress Joanna David (née Joanna Elizabeth Hacking) and her father is actor Edward Fox. Her uncle is James Fox and her cousins Laurence and Lydia also have successful acting careers. She has a brother Freddie and a half sister Lucy. She was educated at the independent Bryanston School where she played the cello, and at St Catherine's College, Oxford, where she read English. Her great-great grandfather was Samson Fox, a self-made millionaire, and her great-grandmother was the actress Hilda Hanbury, sister of Lily Hanbury. Her grandfather was Robin Fox, a theatrical agent. Through Hanbury, she is related to the Terry family of actors.

In 2000 Fox was engaged to the comedian Vic Reeves. Shortly after this she began dating the artist and fashion designer Toby Mott, but the couple ended the relationship soon afterwards. In July 2005, she married the British actor Jared Harris, the son of the Irish actor Richard Harris. The couple announced their split in 2008, and Harris filed for divorce in January 2009. The divorce followed the breakdown of their long-distance relationship and her having a miscarriage in 2007. Fox later entered into a relationship with actor Jeremy Gilley, and in May 2010 it was reported that Fox was pregnant with their child. The Harris-Fox divorce was finalised in June 2010. In November 2010, Fox gave birth to a baby girl named Rose. She and Gilley broke up in 2011.

Fox is a patron of the environmental and human rights charity the Environmental Justice Foundation. She speaks German and French. She gave up drinking alcohol in 2001 and in 2002 gave up smoking. She plays the cello, the piano and the trumpet. Fox is an agnostic.

City banker Mark (Colin Firth) lives with his pregnant wife Laura (Emilia Fox) in a large house in an upper middle-class neighbourhood. Although he has just made a fortune in a financial deal, Mark refuses to give money to a beggar in an underground station, but later regrets this behaviour and begins to feel guilty about his success and opulent lifestyle. Another day, he returns to find the homeless man and gives him 100 pounds. Mark then resolves to use his wealth to help the indigent and volunteer as an outreach worker. As the film develops, it becomes clear that his newfound concern for the poor is also a form of escapism from his materialistic wife, and that he feels trapped and frightened by his life.
