  1. Yay!! There is nothing I like better than to be called an expert of something associated with JA. (Well, technically there are things I would like better, but I wanted to use the expression anyways... heehee.) Thank you for the quiz, Miss Elizabeth!

  2. Somehow I didn't know or didn't remember Susannah Harker's mother, Polly Adams, also played Jane. As a side note her father, Richard Owens, played Colonel Brandon in Sense & Sensibility 1971 (and he also recently commented on my S&S 1971 film review!). Susannah was married to Iain Glen (Mr. Preston in Wives & Daughters) and her sister Caroline was married to Anthony Calf (Col. Fitzwilliam in P&P 1995). Wow! What a family!

    Congrats on winning Melody! Miss Lizzy, thanks so much for hosting such a fun quiz! :)

    1. I love all these little trivia bits about period drama actors/actresses and how they're related to each other. That's amazing that Richard Owens contacted you!

      I'm glad you had fun with this quiz! :-)
