actor: rupert penry-jones

jane austen + the bbc still bringing the pretty boys

After months of sitting on my computer, I finally watched BBC's new version of PersuasionPersuasion is one of the 2 Austen novels that I haven't read yet (the other is Northanger Abbey) so I didn't know the story.  OMG, the glorious angst of it all!!  My heart was breaking, I was on the verge of tears for most of it.  I'm such a sap.  

Just like Pride & Prejudice introduced me to Colin Firth, Persuasion gave me Rupert Penry-Jones.  Watching the behind-the-scenes, someone on the crew called him 'sex on legs'.  Oh, I definitely agree.


I've already started downloading S4 of Spooks/MI:5 cause how can I resist RPJ in a Jack Bauer-esque role?

The movie has only made me want to visit the UK even more (crossing my fingers for '09) and now I need to add Bath to the list of cities to visit just cause I want to see this:

Also, would anyone know where they shot this:


Watched Prince Caspian this past weekend.  Really enjoyed it.  Not only did the inappropriate crushing on William Moseley continue, it was joined by more inappriopriate crushing on Skandar Keynes.
