Trivia: Jane Eyre


  • Dawson Casting: Apparently habitual with this story:
    • Joan Fontaine was 26, eight years older than Jane's 18. Elizabeth Taylor appeared the first time as Helen Burns in an uncredited spot.
    • Charlotte Gainsbourg was 25, seven years older than Jane, though her build and height work well.
    • Almost averted by Zelah Clarke (1983) and by Samantha Morton (1997), both 20 (the youngest Janes so far), only two years older than Jane.
    • Ruth Wilson was 25, seven years older than Jane.
    • Dawson Casting: Mia Wasikowska was 20, as close as Clarke and Morton — and like Gainsbourg, she fits the part well.
