Joely Richardson and her mother Vanessa Redgrave "jumped up and down" like children after learning they were both set to star in a new film together.
The pair will both portray British royal Queen Elizabeth I at different points in her life in upcoming movie Anonymous, and the former Nip/Tuck star is delighted to be featured in the same cast as her mum.
Richardson tells Hello! magazine, "When we heard we'd got the parts, we were really excited. We were jumping up and down like children, we were so thrilled.
"We've worked together before and we love it - Mum always impresses and inspires me. Of course in this film, since we were playing the same person at different ages, we didn't have any scenes together. But it was great to have a friend on set to go to tea with and talk things over and exchange notes about Queen Elizabeth."
