P&P 200: The Many Faces of Elizabeth Bennet (Part 4)

Updating here with a new post (from my last three previous posts, which I just realized I've started about 5 years ago or so back in 2008!) about in continuing with the 200th anniversary celebration of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice novel, which has been going on since the beginning of this year (last January 28th) and the upcoming holiday premiere of a new P&P homage/inspired of TV adaptation (of PD James' best-selling murder mystery novel of the same name) Death Comes to Pemberley starring Matthew Rhys (as Mr. Darcy) and Anna Maxwell Martin (as Elizabeth Darcy...née Bennet) (which premieres on BBC One in the UK this Christmas in 3 consecutive nights from December 26-28) 2013 and also set for a PBS Masterpiece premiere in 2014. No broadcast dates has been announced yet...). So, I've created a new post here and updated the old post.
Elizabeth Bennet (later Elizabeth Darcy) is the protagonist in the 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. She is often referred to as Eliza or Lizzy/Lizzie by her friends and family.

Elizabeth is the second child in a family of five daughters. Though the circumstances of the time and environment require her to seek a marriage of convenience for economic security, Elizabeth wishes to marry for love.

Elizabeth is regarded as the most admirable and endearing of Austen's heroines.[2] She is considered one of the most beloved characters in British literature[3] because of her complexity. Austen herself described Lizzy as "as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print."[4]  Read more on Wikipidea: Elizabeth Bennet
