Austen Actors with January Birthdays

January brings us lots of “oldies, but goodies,” and I am not speaking of the actors being old in chronological years, although some are just that. I am speaking of some of the older adaptations of Austen films. We have actors/actresses from Pride and Prejudice (1958), Pride and Prejudice(1967), Sense and Sensibility (1971), Persuasion (1971), and Emma (1972). Five of our thirteen have appeared in one of the Pride and Prejudice adaptations, while three have been in Sense and Sensibility films. Joanna David is the only one this month who has appeared in more than one Austen adaptation. She was Elinor Dashwood in 1971 and Mrs. Gardiner in 1995. We also have two lovely Bond girls this month: Rosamund Pike and Gemma Arterton.
