My Favourite Sharpe Lady
« on: January 10, 2013, 04:59:23 PM »
I don't know if Sean Bean had a favourite character leading lady but for me (in the film version) it would have to be Lady Anne Camoynes played beautifully by the English actress Caroline Langrishe (also loved her in "Judge John Deed"). 

Why I have picked her, albeit she was only in a couple of eposides, is that out of all of them she did everything she could to help him and did it every time.

Yes I'm with Harper on this one "Lady Anne is very nice too"

Have to agree.  Of all the women he shagged, she was the only one who actually seemed to have his interests at heart - albeit, to the extent that it helped her, but she was never coy about that.

I liked the first (second, I guess) one in the books, too - Grace.  I think they modeled Lady Anne on her character.

My fav was Marie Angelique Bonnet from Sharpe's Peril. She was just the right amount of saucy for him.

Sable just couldn't quite take to the Marie Angelique character too spoilt and shallow - but she sort of came right in the end.  Very beautiful actress though


Lighty I think you are right there was a bit of Grace in the Lady Anne character, and according to the book Sharpe really loved Grace.

My apologies too.  I have just realised that I should have posted this in the "Sharpe" section.  Just forgot where I was at the time :damnit
