He currently stars as a modern-day, just-out-of-rehab Sherlock Holmes in the TV series Elementary. He’s had a variety of roles in shows like Dexter and East Enders. He even appeared in a Brother Cadfael mystery.
So what does actor Jonny Lee Miller have to do with Regency romance? He seems to have a knack for playing an Austen gentleman–which is why he’s our Friday Favorite this week 😀
He’s been in two different adaptations of Mansfield Park, in 1983 as Charles Price and in 1999 as Edmund Bertram.
In 2003, he played the title role in the movie Byron.
And in 2006, he played Mr. Knightly in the BBC miniseries Emma. The clip below is one of my favorite parts of the series, with Romola Garai as Emma Woodhouse.
