Nominated for: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Mini Series or Movie
Role: Sally Gilmartin in Restless
Having featured in another BBC-produced series that has gained international recognition, Charlotte Rampling has been nominated for a supporting actress Emmy for her role in William Boyd's spy drama Restless.
The 67-year-old English actress has found a new audience in the States thanks to her role as Dr Evelyn Vogel in crime drama Dexter.
But it's her part as suspicious former spy Sally Gilmartin (also known as Eva Delectorskaya) that has garnered her reocgnition in the Emmys for the very first time.
Her Restless co-star Michelle Dockery will also be in the audience for the ceremony, as she is nominated for a supporting actress award for her part as Lady Mary in Downton Abbey (read all about her here).
Rampling's category includes fellow British Emmy first-timer Imelda Staunton (we really have popped up everywhere this year, haven't we?), as well as American Horror Story's Sarah Paulson. Read about Imelda Staunton here.
