] Amy -- Juliet Stevenson was Mrs Elton in Emma2 and Harriet Walter was Mrs John (Fanny) Dashwood in S&S2. Both quite horrid in their own way.
Thanks, kathleen. My deficiencies as an adaptation expert are showing again. Yes, now I see. You know what's funny , though, the older I get, the older I want the old bags to be. Like, Lady C could be my age, but somehow I don't want to think of her that way. It's like when we over-40 types read these, we still like to ID with the heroine and pretend we are their age. Do you know what I mean?
Okay, here's another casting idea. Round up all the adaptation jerks and write a tale just for them. Ewwww!
