Patsy Palmer might have relocated to LA in 2014, but she was back on her home turf this week to attend the National Film Awards in London. The actress, 45, was joined by her model daughter, 16-year-old Emilia, for the event, with the pair posing up a storm together on the red carpet. Patsy wowed in a midnight blue gown with sheer panelling, which she teamed with black heels, while Emilia looked stylish in a black maxi dress featuring a sheer polka dot overlay and floral detailing. And there was a chance for a mini EastEnders reunion at the bash, with Patsy's former co-star Danniella Westbrook also in attendance.
Patsy Palmer attended the National Film Awards with her teenage daughter Emilia
Patsy – best known for playing Bianca Jackson in the BBC soap – relocated to America with her husband Richard Merkell four years ago. The couple are also parents to 17-year-old son Fenton and seven-year-old Bertie. Both Fenton and Emilia are carving out a name for themselves as successful models, and in true Hollywood style have also signed up to acting agencies.
Patsy is also mum to 26-year-old actor Charley Palmer Rothwell
Patsy is also mum to 26-year-old son Charley Palmer Rothwell, who is a successful actor in his own right, having appeared in film including Legend, Dunkirk and Darkest Hour. Unlike the rest of his family, Charley decided to remain in the UK when they moved out to the USA. Patsy is understandably very proud of her first-born. Last year, the mother-of-four said on ITV's Lorraine: "He is already a movie star. He should be here now. I should swap places with Charley." During the interview, Patsy also admitted that she had told her children not to get into the industry. When asked what advice she would give her brood she laughed: "Don't do it." She added: "He is amazing, he has done incredible things."
