A peek at the upcoming series starring Romola Garai and Jonny Lee Miller...More information and pics here.Visit BBC's website
Romola looks wonderful as Emma. I'm still not sure about JLM as Mr. Knightley though...
I seem to hear a few comments from those less than enthusiastic about JLM. I'm still eager to see this but I think the trailer has me thinking that it's less "polished" and sophisticated than I thought it would be. I'm hoping for something as totally enchanting as the likes of Cranford!
oh my goodness, I am soooo excited!!! It looks GREAT!!!
I am loving JLM as Mr Knightley now, how strange. He's better than I would have expected. I find this trailer thrilling and I'm actually feeling very comfortable with this cast now. This new Frank Churchill seems to lack striking qualities. We'll have to see, can't wait for it! :)
We don't get to see much of him in this trailer but Frank Churchill is played by Rupert Evans (Frederick Hale in N&S) so looking forward to seeing more of him!
Thank you for this - I'm now looking forward to it more than ever. It's supposed to be shown in the UK in October. Doesn't look to be all that much of an age gap between Romola Garai and JLM, though I'm not sure that will worry me very much.:) Judy
Quite a few seem to think JLM doesn't look old enough. In reality, he's 10 years older - not sure what the age difference is in the book...
Ive seen so many lovely BBC period dramas that I know all the actors, and I love them !!!. Cheers from Spain.
One thing I actually enjoy in this is that the characters seem their age, except of course Knightley who does seem a bit too young. In the 1996 Emma everyone seemed about 10 years older than they really were, including Emma herself! Very excited about JLM, though -- been a big fan of his for years.
I HAVE RETIRED FROM THE BLOG AND WILL NO LONGER BE DOING UPDATES. THANKS!
