  1. Loads of these that I still need to see - in the last few weeks I saw 'Cambridge Spies', which I liked a lot. I really want to see his version of 'Gatsby', if it is ever repeated or released on DVD! But, of course, 'Jane Eyre' has to be my favourite...

  2. The devastatingly handsome Toby Stephens, a man of amazing talent, certainly deserves a place of honor here. In the interest of accuracy, in the charming photo of his family he is the younger brother and Chris the older. :)

  5. Judy, I heard Gatsby wasn't that great. I ADORED him in Jane Eyre!

    Thanks Anon for that correction, I always thought he was older!

    SMiles, I'm due to watch WH again soon! And Teresa, I'm glad you liked him in Possession cuz although he was as dashing as ever, he was such the scoundrel!

  7. I think the 2006 BBC version of Jane Eyre was the best ive seen! Toby was awsome and played the role of Rochester exceptionally well. He showed Rochester's rough side, the rake, the depressed and the lover all in the movie exactly like the book. He should have won best actors award.

  8. Gatsby itself is an okay adaptation, but Toby is definitely the best part. The character comes off as shallow, but that is the point, and Toby's American accent was flawless. Until my friend pointed it out, I didn't know it was him!
