Name the Austen Couples

Name the Austen Couples

My post on Cinematic Lovers on February 7 was quite popular. For some reason a plethora of romance movie aficionados haunt my blog. Shocking! Since that recognition quiz was handled so well, I composed another lovers quiz. This one contains images of couples from Jane Austen movies. All are married, although not necessarily the hero and heroine of the novel. How many can you name? And, if you know the year of the adaptation and the actors playing the parts, my bonnet will be doffed for sure!

Giveaway hearts smallLike the other fun quizzes, this one is not graded and I will post the answers in March along with the winners of my “Month of Love” giveaway. It isn’t too late to add entries to the giveaway. Click the image here, or in the sidebar, for the Rafflecopter form.

    I had to search some of the actors’ names as I don’t remember the spelling and some I forgotten the name.

      • I have watched all the adaptations except for R and I love them all. Although the storyline is similar, each film/mini-series offer something different like the glorious setting and unique perspective of the main characters.

        • Yes I couldn’t agree more. I get so excited when a new one is being released! Wonder when we’re due for the next one 😉 I’ve recently discovered a very old Sense and Sensibility which I loved watching ( Elinor was played by a very young Joanna David aka Mrs Gardiner 1995)
          Northanger Abbey (R) is very creepy, but well made 🙂

  3. Um, yeah, I know who they all are as characters, not as actors. Vee, that is absolutely amazing! The only one that gave me pause was R. Very very cool!!

    • Thanks Stephanie! I love any adaptation of Jane Austen’s novels and I’ve watched them all many times. But I did enlist the help of the internet for many of the real names. It was good fun 🙂

    Great fun Sharon! I love all these adaptations and more! I had to check the date and names on most of them though!

      • Haha thanks Sharon, the characters were easy but there’s no way I would have remembered all of their real names and even some of the dates without checking. It was good fun!

I love to hear from you!
