    I really like Felicity, but I want the puppy even more.

  2. Lily Lotus Rose

    She was very good in Northagner Abbey. I barely remember her from Brideshead Revisited, though I enjoyed that movie on the whole. Overall she has a likable face and just comes across as a decent person of substance, not a flake. Her look in the picture from Servants reminds me very much of Sally Hawkins’s look in Fingersmith.

    Wait, they gender flipped Prospero? I bet Dame Helen was wonderful.
