WCW: Rosalind Eleazar


British actress Rosalind Eleazar doesn’t have a ton of frock flick screen credits — yet! The productions she has been featured in, however, have been popular and I hope they’re advancing her career. She graduated from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in 2015 and has been working steadily ever since in TV and theater, and now with last year’s Dickens adaption, she’s had her film debut. I’ll be watching for more!



Jacky Bast in Howards End (2017)

Howards End (2017)

While I’m not a fan of this remake, I did appreciate how Jacky and Leopold’s relationship was more fully explored.

This gave Eleazar room to shine.

Her character was more fully drawn.

And her final scenes were more tragic.



Violet Cross in Harlots (2017-18)

Rosalind Eleazar - Harlots (2017-8)

As one of the street prostitutes, Eleazar has a complicated life and a series of very interesting plotlines.

I only wish her character had continued on, & the series too!



Ava in Lore, “Elizabeth Bathory: Mirror, Mirror” (2018)

Rosalind Eleazar - Lore (2018)

Just to be completionist, this is some awful-looking horror docu-drama with an episode about Elizabeth Bathory. I mean, at least Rosalind Eleazar’s hair is up, unlike random Tudor chick?

And I guess all these crappy costumes pass the 20-foot rule?



Agnes in The Personal History of David Copperfield (2019)

Now here we go! This is such a fun movie.

With excellent performances by everyone, & great chemistry between Dev Patel & Rosalind Eleazar.

Decent costumes too, for mid-Victorian.

    Loved her in Howard’s End and Harlots! I still have to give David Copperfield a watch!

    I have not seen this Copperfield but must do so–the cast! (And at least R.E. didn’t have to play Dora, my least favorite dear little Victorian heroine.)

    I haven’t seen any of these. I’ve been on the fence about the Howard’s End remake for a while. This post makes it seem more interesting. I really enjoyed the 90s film, even so I wanted more of HBC’s character. P.S. Dev Patel looks delish in that last picture.

    I enjoyed this Howard’s End more than I expected. I LOVED David Copperfield, it was so well done, fresh without straining the text too too hard. I loved the colors and the actors and the humor and the theme of writing and I loved how they handled Dora, who I always hated in the book.

    Lore was better in its first season. It actually focused on the facts and the history. By season two, Prime Video had more control and got way more meddlesome. The episode on Jack Parsons was all right, the Red Riding Hood episode was surprisingly good, the episode on body stealing wanted too badly to be directed by Guy Ritchie. And the Bathory Erzebet episode was one I couldn’t finish, even though I find her fascinating. But Ava was literally the best part of the episode, because I always got the feeling she was ten steps from slugging the Countess and telling her “do you realize how dumb you’re being?”
