Hi Mary,Are you in a North and South mood? I love the miniseries and I love the book. Yum yum yum. That RA is pretty easy on the eyes (and ears with that gorgeous accent) isn't he? What made you think of this today?Jenny
I just finished proofing Mr. Darcy's Bite, my werewolf story, for Sourcebooks. I pictured Mr. Darcy as Richard Armitage. So he has been on my mind--not a bad thing to have on one's mind. :)I really enjoyed this production. I think the casting was perfect. It could have been a pretty dreary tale without Daniela and Richard.
I have to say that North and South is one of my all time favorite books and movies. The movie with Richard Armitage and Daniela is my all time favorite romantic ending. I don't know if it's the tension of the whole 4-5 hours of movie..the ups and downs in the story, the music certainly contributes, the train stop, the wonderful touching of hands, dialogue, and the lovely kiss - not too gross, not a peck on the cheek - just right. It is a different ending than the book. But I have to say for once that I like the movie ending better. However unlikely it would be...in a public place. I still love the romance, costuming, scenery, dialogue. It is really perfect.
