Welcome to the fanlisting
for the BAFTA and Tony award-winning actress, Jennifer Ehle, who is probably best known for her portrayal of Elizabeth Bennet alongside Colin Firth in the BBC's Pride and Prejudice
. This 1995 BBC drama, starring Ehle and Colin Firth (as Mr. Darcy) consisted of six episodes that retold Jane Austen's famous novel of the same name. Jennifer Ehle is shown in the television series, wearing period-style attire and getting from place to place via horse-drawn carriage, as car transport
was not available at the time.
Her role as Elizabeth Bennet may be one of the most compelling portrayals of Austen's lead female character. Ehle is known for capturing the true essence of the characters she plays, and for moving people as they watch her performances. It is no secret that Jennifer Ehle is a great actress, and gives a remarkable delivery of each character she takes on. She has a large body of critically acclaimed work in film, television, and theater.
