Which new British actor(s) would you like to see playing Jane Austen's leading men?

Thursday, June 23, 2011

I was thinking how fun it would be for all of us Jane Austen fans to vote for the actors we would like to see playing her leading men in future film remakes of Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and Emma.  Maybe Henry Cavill?  Elijah Wood?  Ben Barns?  Colin Firth (1995) and Matthew Macfayden (2005) did a wonderful job with Pride and Prejudice. Who was not in love with them?  Rupert Penry-Jones melted a million hearts with his portrayal of Captain Wentworth in the 2007 version of Persuasion. Johnny Lee Miller (1999) and Blake Ritson (2007) made us all fall in love with Edmund Bertram, and Ewan Macgregor (1996) and Johnny Lee Miller (2009) made us want desperately to be Emma for a day.  A whole new set of British actors have arrived on the scene in recent years.  Any whom you would like to see cast in one of the (probable) future film remakes of her novels?  Please email me at lucewandarings@gmail.com or contact me on Facebook or Twitter with your vote.  Watch my blog for the results!  Maybe our vote will count!
