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.

Japan had been at war with China since 1937 before declaring war on the United States and the United Kingdom. Amidst the war, Jamie Graham, a British upper middle class schoolboy fascinated with Japanese planes and pilots, is enjoying a privileged and spoiled life in the Shanghai International Settlement. At a costume party he attends with his parents, he wanders off and encounters a Japanese airplane that had been shot down. Nearby he finds a camp full of Japanese troops in a trench and is taken aback. Jamie's father finds him and forces him to leave, Jamie not realizing the impending danger. After the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, the Japanese begin to occupy the Shanghai International Settlement and in the ensuing chaos to escape the city and catch the next ferry out of Shanghai, Jamie is separated from his parents in the crowds of panicking people. Over the crowds of people Jamie's mother shouts at him to wait for them back at their house and promises that they will come back for him. He spends some time living in his deserted house, occupying his time by waiting and eating remnants of food but eventually he ventures out into the city and finds it bustling with Japanese troops.
