Austen Actors with May Birthdays

Austen Actors with May Birthdays
It is time once again to take a second look at some of our favorite actors in Austen-related films. We shall celebrate fifteen actors this month. Some have acted in more than one Austen film: Christina Cole was in both Lost in Austen and Emma 2009; Phyllida Law acted in both Miss Austen Regrets and Emma 1996; and Carey Mulligan can be found in both Pride and Prejudice 2005 and Northanger Abbey 2007. Together, Michelle Ryan and Hayley Atwell took on roles for 2007’s Mansfield Park. Ben Gourley and Kam Heskin acted together in Pride and Prejudice: A Latter-Day Comedy. Phyllida Law is Greg Wise’s mother-in-law. The “connections” go on and on. Unfortunately, three of those we highlight in this slideshow have left us forever: Peter Cushing, Maureen O’Sullivan, and Sir Laurence Olivier. I hope you enjoy the slide show.
