Meet Tamzin Merchant, one of Pride & Prejudice's rising stars

Remember Tamzin Merchant from the 2005 Pride & Prejudice film? Probably not, but you will after you read this post...

For those of you who have been trying/taking the recent I've previously posted here and didn't get one of the answers correct on Pride & Prejudice Quiz (#2) question #15...I'm not surprised as she wasn't as well known as the two other younger familiar Bennet sisters (rising stars Carey Mulligan and Talulah Riley who played Kitty and Mary Bennet in P&P) and her name's not as easy to remember or spell, lol. But she's getting noticed now though in television and she did play one of P&P's main characters' sibling, Georgiana Darcy, the talented/accomplished in playing the pianoforte/and younger sister of the handsome and enigmatic Mr. Darcy (played by Matthew Macfadyen). See the question below to see her name...

15. Name three actresses whose big-screen debut was this [Pride & Prejudice] film.

Correct Answer:
Carey Mulligan (Kitty Bennet), Talulah Riley (Mary Bennet), and Tamzin Merchant (Georgiana Darcy)
Anyway, Tamzin Merchant earlier seen in ShowTime's popular series The Tudors (previously in their 3rd season) as Catherine Howard (King Henry's fifth wife. Click on her character's name to learn more about her). She joined the series at the end of Season 3 and looks like she'll appear more in their upcoming Season 4.
Here are promotional photos of Tamzin (with the main star of the show, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who previously co-starred with Tamzin's former P&P co-star
in her big screen debut Bend It Like Beckham).
