I knew Emma when I was at Oakbank School, mostly during rehearsals and performances for The Importance Of Being Earnest. She was the year above me, and we were both members of an unofficial group of music and drama students that congregated in those departments, whether we had lessons there or not. We rehearsed for several weeks for that play, leading up to Christmas, and she was so, so good in the role, but it was the bits between performing I enjoyed the most, when we were all just hanging around. She was so clever, and so funny and just incredibly likeable. It remains one of my lasting memories of that time and I’m extremely happy for that.
