There have been numerous adaptations of Charlotte Bronte's most famous novel, Jane Eyre. This BBC adaptation shown in Autumn 2006 is my favourite and it is brilliant! Ruth Wilson is wonderful as Jane Eyre, Ruth brings Jane to life through her facial expressions, one minute she can be sad and lonely, the next look beautiful and happy. Ruth plays Jane as I imagine her in the book and brings a freshness to Jane which no other actress has done before.Toby Stephens is fantastic as Edward Fairfax Rochester. Toby plays Edward Fairfax
Rochester with the right amount of darkness, humour and tenderness as was just right for the character. Toby also looks right to play Rochester as well. I also love the chemistry between Ruth and Toby!
I have read and watched Jane Eyre so many times I know it off by heart, I watch it when I am in pain, feeling sad or when I need a Rochester fix! It is my comfort DVD.
I love this adapation. Ruth and Toby are brilliant!! :) xx
