My Perfect Pride & Prejudice
November 01, 2011
Have you ever wondered what your favorite movie would be like if you could cast it? I actually think about it a lot.
Mostly, I stick to re-casting Jane Austen movies.
Take, for example, Pride & Prejudice. There have been three movies made so far --well, four if you count the Greer Garson one, which I don’t because it bears little resemblance to the book it claims to be adapted from-- two from the BBC and one motion picture.
Because they were made so far apart, I feel quite safe in having a bit of fun and mixing up the leads. So, who would be in my perfect “Pride & Prejudice”?
Behold my ultimate fantasy cast list!!!
PRIDE & PREJUDICE
Elizabeth Bennet: Jennifer Ehle
Mr. Darcy: David Rintoul
Jane Bennet: Sabina Franklyn
Mr. Bingley: Crispin Bonham-Carter
Mrs. Bennet: Priscilla Morgan
Mr. Bennet: Benjamin Whitrow
Lydia Bennet: Jena Malone
Mr. Wickham: Peter Settelen
Charlotte Lucas: Irene Richard
Mr. Collins: David Bamber
Lady Catherine de Bourgh: Judy Parfitt
Caroline Bingley: Marsha Fitzalan
Please be sure to ask your local branch for any or all of the aforementioned adaptations, and make your own cast list! Happy Watching!
