In response to Who to play Henry Tilney?, written by Arnessa on October 13, 1997 at 22:43:13
] Too bad we haven't seen the definitive film version of NA yet. The one with Peter Firth has some interesting parts, but on the whole, it left me yawning. Could CF play Henry Tilney? Somehow I doubt it. Need someone less smouldering.
] What about Matthew Broderick? He's my idea of funny, and sweet. But he's not British. Could he do the accent?
I think Henry needs to be played by someone with a sense of humour or at least experience doing comedy so I nominate Sam West or this other actor whose named Jason Fleming (I think this is his name but I'm guessing (he was in the Scottish doctor series on Masterpiece Theatre) he is capable of real devilry which I think Henry should have. That and a smile that lights up his face the moment after he's commited his mischeif. Lovely boys!
