Mark Strong, a Darkly Handsome Mr. Knightley!

Mark Strong plays Mr. Knightley to Kate Beckinsale's Emma in the 1996 A&E Production of Emma written by Andrew Davies. Goodness, but this man is aging well. His film career is thriving (6 films in one year), though he's transitioned from hero and leading man into a smooth villain. Never mind. Many women love men who are dark and dangerous. I'd say Mark fits that bill to perfection. Click on the following links to learn more about him.

The Mark Strong Information Page links to a large series of pictures of Mark Strong as Mr. Knightley. Click on English, for the blog is also written in German.

Mark Strong is yummy! The sad thing is that I never even noticed him in his role in Emma until after I saw him in Stardust. The role he plays in Miss Pettigrew is closer to Septimus than Mr. Knightley, but the 1930s look good on him too!

I've always thought he would make a perfect Mr. Rochester or Heathcliff. Are you listening Hollywood?
