Fun with Casting

Check out Miss Eliza’s blog, where she makes a very convincing argument for casting Felicity Jones (Catherine Morland in the recent BBC adaptation of Northanger Abbey) as Amy Balcourt. Miss Jones does look rather as I imagined our impulsive heroine:

Any thoughts on who you’d cast as Richard?

    Wow she’s perfect!

    Yes, please eveyone stop by and tell me who you think is perfect! A new couple every weekend. I love dream casting, so much fun.

    Since I saw “Northanger Abbey,” I thought that Felicity would be a great choice for Amy.

    As for Richard, I really think Henry Cavill or maybe even Jude Law (???) could do well. Richard Armitage couldn’t hurt, either. Throw him into anything and I’ll watch it!

    I pictured Henry Cavill as well. He would be a perfect Richard!

    I always pictured Jude Law as Colin! But I think Greg Wise (Sense & Sensibility) would make a great Richard.

    I’ve always pictured Richard as Rupert Penry-Jones.
