Emilia Fox, Mr. Darcy's Little Sister All Grown Up

Emilia Fox, who played Georgiana Darcy in Pride and Prejudice 1995, is gorgeous, all grown up, and sadly divorced. Read about her current life in this Daily Mail article.

Emilia's next project will be playing Queen Elizabeth in a 5-part Channel 4 docudrama series.

"One of five actresses playing the Queen at pivotal points in her life, Emilia will appear as the 29-year-old monarch in the first hour-long episode. It deals with the moment the affair that the Queen's sister, Princess Margaret, had with Captain Peter Townsend - a divorcé, and therefore deemed unsuitable for a princess - became public knowledge just after the Coronation."

Emilia's also the narrator of Naxos's unabridged Pride and Prejudice audio book and does a splendid job reading Jane's superb novel. Learn more about the audio book in this link.
