A Film By Cassia
James Frain...................Roland Michell
I know, I know, I once considered Rufus Sewell (than again I consider him for just about everything) for Roland but he is too tall. Mr Frain is the right height, right age, and if you recall his performance in Prime Suspect 3 you'll know his capable of generating a great deal of pathos and desperation. I want that for Roland.
Jeremy Irons....................Randolf Henry Ash
I want the actor who playes St. John Rivers on JE to be Fergus Wolfe. I've always pictured Fergus as a sort of Richard-Branson-if-he-hadn't-gone-into-business type and Rupert Penry-Jones has the perfect look.
I'm not sure about the actresses yet. I acan't find a Maud. It's so difficult to find a very tall, very blonde, very intelligent actor and Maud must be all three. Dr Nest could be Geraldine McEwan but we'd have to lose the bust which means Beatrice looses part of her raison d'etre. I can't make up my mind at the moment but will post more when I do.
