Hi gals,

Now after a long day at work, I finally seem to have visions. What about Nat playing Edward Rochester once more. Years after his first episode, now the original... Nat in Jane Eyre, a nice BBC four-part made-for-TV production (ahhh that would be the 121st dealing with that novel?).

I'd like to think that would be great fun for him to play Eddie once more... older, a bit wiser, with a secret - his age is right, too.

Cheers

I think it is a fabulous idea. It has been a while since I have seen a goof production of this story. I have a confession to make - showing you how much a bookworm I am. When I was 13 I used to head down to the unfinished basement of my parent's house and read. This was one of the books I used to slip off my mum's bookshelf and just devour in my little reading hide-away. The subtle eye and facial expressions complimented with Nat's ability to just "explode" on the screen would make him a perfect Rochester. Good call there.

Hello! E. Rochester, yes, a great idea. Perhaps if Anna Patrick were homely, she could be Jane, but I think she is much too pretty for the part. He would be absolutely fantastic as Mr. Rochester. His voice could boom a bit as you say! Recently, on America's A&E Network, the latest version of Jane Eyre was viewed...with an Irish actor (sorry, can't remember his name). It was a grand production and very well acted, but Nathaniel would be just delicious in it! By the way, I love Nathaniel's voice...it is so terribly aristocratic!!

Now I haven't seen Anna Patrick perform so I can't totally comment (I have Othello in my Netflix que) but really the best actresses to portray Jane don't necessarily have to be homely per se. It's the quality of the acting. Now I have been reading on this site that she is quite good and I am sure that she is. Her hair being dark is also a big help. Just the passion between the two of them would probably translate beautifully on the screen.

Nat as Rochester again, is something I think I am inclined to agree with! Absolutely. He resonates like fine wine. As the years are passing by, he has grown more attractive and has a deeper sense of reacting to his environment with more facets of his sensuality. :rolleyes:

Well maybe Rochester but i would love to see him do Oak again from FFTMC. I think that would be great or even do a Haunted Manison 2 and this time Nat is the main feature. :laugh:
