Me too! My family probably gets tired of me saying "oh!! That person was on such and such!" ;-)

Glad you had time to comment before you left.

Very nice Melody! I enjoy seeing lists like these of which actors have been in other period dramas, that's why I usually include at least a short list with every film review I do. I'm not sure if it's interesting to other people but it's very interesting to me!
And when I watch a new period drama with my family I usually have to have my laptop handy because they usually recognize an actor and want to know the other films they've been in! But it's interesting to me too. ;)

Wow.. Frank Churchil and Frederik Hale were played by the same actor. I never noticed that. Frederik Hale looked lot more innocent and boyish. But again, he was younger than (2005). And, I guess even the character that they play changes our perception. Frank Churchil was bleh.

Frederik Hale reminds me, have you seen/read North and South? I don't see it mentioned on your blog (which I am very much enjoying reading today).

Rachana,
I have indeed seen North & South several times, and enjoy it very much! I haven't read the book, but I plan to later this year. :)
I'm glad you've been enjoying my blog! Thank you very much for leaving a comment!
