Jennifer Ehle Speaks About Her Role as Elizabeth Bennet and Tracy Lord

In 2005 Jennifer Ehle spoke about her role in the Philadelphia Story at the Old Vic on BBC Radio 4's Woman's Hour, as well as her turn as Elizabeth Bennet in Pride and Prejudice. Listen to this 9-minute interview with Jennifer, whose American accent is somewhat surprising. According to Jennifer's fan site, she was only 24 years old when she created the role of Lizzy.

In June, Jennifer won a Tony Award for The Coast of Utopia, and as you can see from the photo, she looked blond, lovely, and sparkling during her acceptance speech. Watch Jennifer and Colin Firth (see post below) as Lizzy and Mr. Darcy in Part 2 of Pride and Prejudice 1995 tomorrow night at 9 p.m. EST. - posted Ms. Place
