Mansfield Park: Recognizable Actors

Here are the actors/actresses on Mansfield Park movies who I recognized from other old-fashioned films.

I love how when you watch a period drama, you can recognize so many actors/actresses from other period dramas. It adds to the fun of watching them!

I think Samantha Bond was also in an episode of Lark Rise to Candleford, but it was only one episode. She was also in Downton Abbey for one episode also.
