] Emma Woodhouse is Emma Woodhouse-greg. And as for KB,as an actress, I think she is the emotional equivalent of the floor. Her "I love you. I think I always have." was lethargic. Emma is supposed to have woken up by that time. GP was much more in keeping with my impressions. She was charming, playful, and touching. Her "I love him. So dearly, so greatly.." was sincere and heartbreaking. She is an instinctively emotional actress.
i see we have slightly different views on kb! i need to see gp in other roles to get an idea of her range, perhaps(emma is the only role i've seen her play). i just personally don't find her very interesting at all. the scene you mention is the one with mrs. weston, right before the "i love/hate john" isn't it? that's a favorite of mine, but i thought it had more potential than was realized; i thought she kind of rushed through "i love him" the way others say mark strong slurred the "brother and sister!" line in the emma3 dance scene.
