Speaking of Miss #JaneBennet 🎀 from yesterday’s trivia Tuesday answer post (if you’ve read the P.S. part in the caption 😉), her “why ever not?” line in #PrideandPrejudice2005 movie, Miss #RosamundPike (@mspike) 😉 also said it in her other drama, #WivesandDaughters (1999) six years back, as young #LadyHarriet. 😉😁 I saw the W&D miniseries about a year or two after I first saw Rosamund in P&P movie (way back in 2005) and that line instantly caught my attention, lol. If you have seen W&D, you know what I’m talking about or if you did and didn’t noticed this interesting lil’ detail before...now, you know. 😁 I thought I’d share this here as I found a clip from episode one of W&D with the quote and compared it with Jane’s similar quote from P&P! (Swipe to see it 😉)
Here’s a little #WaybackWednesday post about Jane/LHarriet.
#WivesandDaughters (1999) - Rosamund Pike, #TomHollander, #PenelopeWilton
Elizabeth Gaskell's enchanting tale of romance, scandal, and intrigue in a gossipy English town.
This was a pretty good miniseries. I quite enjoyed watching it. Four P&P actors (Three of them from P&P 05 and one from P&P 95) co-starred in this BBC miniseries along with #MatthewMacfadyen's wife, actress #KeeleyHawes. Not to mention, the screenwriter was Andrew Davies (same writer who wrote the script for P&P '95). Great cast! Interesting too that Penelope Wilton (P&P 05's #MrsGardiner) as Mrs. Hamley played as Tom Hollander's (P&P 05's MrCollins) Osbourne Hamley's mother in W&D. They both did a great job (especially TH playing a dramatic role for a change) with all their scenes and episodes they appeared in as does MM's wife Keeley Hawes as Cynthia Kirkpatrick, the protagonist Molly Gibson's step-sister. Also, the actress, Justin Wadell, who played the lead character, Molly Gibson, was in the #JaneAusten adapted film, 1999's #Mansfield Park as Julia Bertram. And of course, we got Rosamund Pike (P&P 05's Jane Bennet) as Lady Harriet Cumnor daughter of Lady Cumnor played by Barbara Leigh-Hunt (P&P '95's Lady Catherine...she still acts like Lady C in this one too as she plays another snob Lady Cumnor 😁). So, we got P&P and MP actors in this miniseries!
