Redman: Emily's acting inevitable

Amanda Redman has said it was inevitable her daughter Emily would become an actress.

Emily, Amanda's daughter from her marriage to actor Robert Glenister, has worked with her on At Home With The Braithwaites and New Tricks.

As well as her parents, she has Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes star Philip Glenister for an uncle, and her grandfather John Glenister was a TV director.

Amanda said: "Really it was inevitable that she would go into it, not just her parents but her uncle, her grandfather, all in the industry so family gatherings were always just talking shop.

"She grew up with it all so she knows the industry inside out from being born into it really. So she knew the pitfalls."

Asked how she feels about her daughter's career choice, she said: "It's a tough industry, so as long as it makes her happy I'm happy, but it's her life so it's got to be her decision."

:: New Tricks returns to BBC One on Tuesday, July 30.
