Romola Garai, Jonny Lee Miller, and Michael Gambon in Cast of Emma 2009


The Telegraph has an article with some of the cast members of the upcoming BBC miniseries of Emma, with a script by Sandy Welch. Romola Garai will play the lead, and is an excellent choice in our opinion; we’ve liked her for some time and wanted to see her in an Austen adaptation, and we think she’ll make a fine Emma.

The article also says that Jonny Lee Miller will play Mr. Knightley and the always wonderful Sir Michael Gambon will play Mr. Woodhouse. Filming starts next week in Kent and Surrey (wow! actual locations named in the novel! what a concept!)
