Image
Today is the 65th birthday of two-time Academy Award Award NomineeBrenda Blethyn, best known to us P&P fans as Mrs. Bennet, the Bennet girls' mother in the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film as well as Grace Turner, Robbie's mother in Atonement.

After twenty years of hard work on stage and both television and films, there are not many other actresses who deserved the success, recognition and stardom which Brenda Blethyn has now achieved.

Born in (February 20th) 1946 in Ramsgate in Kent, England, she started her career at British Rail in the 1960s. Saving money during her time there, she took a risk and enrolled herself at the at The Guildford School of Acting in Guildford, Surrey, England and then left her British Rail years behind. Her risk had paid off, by the mid-1970s she was working on stage, eventually joining the National Theatre Company in 1975. (Read more of her Bio on IMDB!)

Travel to destinations featured in Pride & Prejudice
Movies are often an inspiration for travelers, especially when the location is as beautiful as the English countryside.

The fact that the East Midlands region of England was used extensively for location filming for Pride and Prejudice is especially fitting given that Jane Austen drew on the Derbyshire landscape for some of her most descriptive passages in the novel. Austen's descriptions of the county refer to there being "no finer county in England than Derbyshire", and feature "all the celebrated beauties of Matlock, Chatsworth, Dovedale, and the Peak". (from VisitBritain) Here are some newly added and updated photos and locations (of the location/houses) where P&P movie was filmed i…
