Fox: I'd rather my girl be a doctor

Emilia Fox would prefer her daughter go into medicine

Emilia Fox has said she'd rather her daughter goes into medicine than acting.

The actress was pregnant while filming the forthcoming series of Silent Witness, and gave birth to a daughter at the end of November.

But she says she hopes her daughter picked up more of the medical terminology while in the womb than the acting side.

She said: "Apparently babies can hear in the womb, so I just hope that the baby's been picking up on the pathology and not the fun of acting and that she'll head straight to medical school."

Acting is in the genes, however. Emilia was born into an acting dynasty - her mother is Joanna David, her father Edward Fox, and her cousin Laurence Fox is the star of Lewis and husband of actress Billie Piper. Brother Freddie is just beginning to spread his acting wings, with roles in Any Human Heart and Worried About The Boy.

:: Silent Witness begins on BBC1 on January 3.
