"Elizabeth Ehle"

We all know that Keira Knightley loved the BBC's Pride and Prejudice. And we all know that she admires Jennifer Ehle's portrayal of Elizabeth. She loves it so much, that she hasn't a clue where Elizabeth Bennet ends and Jennifer Ehle begins.

...she refers, several times, to the actress playing Elizabeth Bennet in that version as "Elizabeth Ehle, oh, Jennifer Ehle."

"I desperately tried to not go up for this, even though I'd been completely in love with the book," Knightley says. "I couldn't see how not to do a copy of Elizabeth, um, Jennifer's wonderful, wonderful performance.

These quotes are from an article written for The Montgomery Advertiser by Rodger Moore.
