The Austenland Cast Fantasizes About The Outspoken Girl Getting The Guy | VH1.com
"When you read Austen, it’s funny,” said Feild, who plays Mr. Henry Nobley, the “Darcy” figure at the theme park. “She was a very humorous writer and if you look at some of the other writers [like Bronte or Dickens], they’re a lot more dour and tragic. So, Austen manages to keep sort of the beautiful thrill of the time with a sort of charm. There’s a lot of charm to Austen.”
Coolidge spoke up, “Jane Austen is not just like the ‘pretty girl gets the guy.’ It’s the outspoken girl that…you know…”
“You know,” Russell sarcastically interjected, “it’s the non-pretty sister. The Keira Knightley.”
