Why don't we send in Nat as a new teacher at Hogwarts? I can see him there as teacher who has his mind sent on replacing Snape.

I will call JK Rowling. Maybe she can write Nat into the new book. There were a lot of good English actors (like John Hurt as Mr Olivander) in the Potter movies so why not Nat.

Thinking about it now, I just had to laugh so hard. I read a BBC news bit the other day telling me that Auntie Beeb actually does make another Jane Eyre adaptation. I must have had it in my bones (or my subconsciousness??? Where's my IT lately). Anyway I thought I'd share this with you. Toby Stephens was also a subject matter on this forum a year ago, I think it was somewhere in another thread... anyway an exciting actor, no doubt

And "guess who's coming to dinner":

Newcomer Ruth Wilson (Jane Eyre) and Toby Stephens (Edward Rochester) head up an all-star cast in a passionate new version of the much-adored classic Jane Eyre for BBC ONE.
The four-part serial also stars Francesca Annis as Lady Ingram, Christina Cole as Blanche Ingram, Lorraine Ashbourne as Mrs Fairfax, Pam Ferris as Grace Poole and Tara Fitzgerald as Mrs Reed. Georgie Henley, who recently starred in the Christmas blockbuster The Chronicles of Narnia plays young Jane while Aidan McArdle plays the visionary John Eshton. The drama is currently filming entirely on location in Derbyshire.

Funny I can't help thinking that Toby Stephens looks a bit, well out of his usual style... and OK I am biased - I know that SOMEONE ELSE would and should have been doing this *mumbles*.

Cheers nonetheless!

Yep, many others would agree too. Been watching the latest Jane Eyre series on BBC. Interesting locations etc. but - sorry to Toby Stephens whose portrayal, or the screenplay script he has been given, of Mr. Rochester character seems too unsure and too soul-searching, fumbling, lacks 'steeliness'. Maybe this is designed for a 19902/noughties audience? Who knows....but yes, this would be a good and obvious one for Nat.
Meanwhile, Far From the Madding Crowd remains one of my favourites...

Hi.

Here in Sweden, they showed Jane Eyre on the 80's with Timothy Dalton in the role.

This is what Jane Eyre is for me. Haven't seen another ones, yet...
