Bertram, played by Jonny Lee Miller
"The Boy" Bertram, will be portrayed by
the British actor Jonny Lee Miller, known best
from "Trainspotting", where he starred
alongside Ewan McGregor, and "Hackers",
where he met his wife, Angelina Jolie.
Bertramites might recognise him from the 1983
version of "Mansfield Park", where he
played Little Boy Price.
Crawford, played by Alessandro Nivola
favourite rake, by Jane Austen described as
"plain and black", will be played by a
tasty (blonde) actor. Well, something can be said
for artistic license, I suppose. He's an American
actor, in possession of a fine British accent, so
he doesn't need to be ashamed of appearing in
this English costume drama.
Crawford, played by Embeth Davidtz
Australian actress, known from movies as
"Mathilda", where she played the
endearing Miss Honey, and "The Gingerbread
Man", where she starred alongside Kenneth
Brannagh, will be playing the cunning, charming
and witty Mary Crawford, and judging from this
spicy picture, and her line in the trailer, we
can judge that she will be very equal to the
Price, played by Frances O' Connor
sweet and gentle Fanny Price will be played by the relatively unknown
Frances O'Connor.... well, she certainly has the right name.
Alessandro Nivola--Henry Crawford
Jonny Lee Miller--Edmund Bertram
Embeth Davidtz--Mary Crawford
Harold Pinter--Sir Thomas Bertram
Lindsay Duncan--Lady Bertram? (Played Lady Ballaston in the A&E Tom Jones)
Sheila Gish--Mrs. Norris?
James Purefoy--Tom Bertram
Victoria Hamilton--Julia Bertram (Played Henrietta Musgrove and Mrs. Forster)
Justine Waddell--Maria Bertram (Played Tess in the A&E Production)
Hugh Bonneville--Mr. Rushworth
Benny Pest--Mr. Yates
Information on the last two was found at IMDB--Benny Pest was not in the
trailer credits, and HB being Mr. R comes from the IMDB. On the Mrs. N/Lady
B situation, I'm just guessing that to be the state of affairs with no
real surety, although feel positive on the rest of it.
