London, Aug 30 (IANS) Actress Julianne Moore, who was born in the US, is “thrilled” after gaining British citizenship and says that the move will please her late mother Anne, who was a Scottish.

“I’ve just become a UK (Britain) citizen. Isn’t that something? I’m really thrilled and it would have meant the world to her (mom). Her parents emigrated when she was 10, so she didn’t have a choice about moving to the United States,” quoted Moore as saying.

The 50-year-old’s mother had to renounce her British citizenship when she married Peter, an American who was an army colonel and later a military judge.

“My sister and I both remember her coming home in tears carrying the American flag,” she said.
