More info on Wikipidea: Elizabeth Bennet:

The enduring popularity of Pride and Prejudice has seen the novel frequently adapted for both television and the cinema. Among the actresses who have taken the role of Elizabeth Bennet are:
While not strict adaptations of the original text, other notable versions of Elizabeth Bennet (or characters directly based on her) in productions based on Austen's text include:


  1. Oh, now I see - Bridget Jones was "loosely inspired by Pride and Prejudice" - nice.

    I don't want to be ignorant as I haven't seen any other version except the 05 one, but Keira Knightly made the best Elizabeth Bennet so far! :)

  2. Yeah, BJ was, hence the "Mark Darcy" character played by the '95 Darcy actor, Colin Firth.

    I've seen the '95 and '80 versions, but I agree with you that Keira Knightley was the BEST actress that portrayed Elizabeth Bennet on screen (that I've seen) ...at least in my opinion.
