What is the main cast of Sense and Sensibility up to today?
It has been seven years since BBC released one of the best Sense and Sensibility adaptations of all time. Since we are slowly nearing a decade since it first aired in January of 2008, I think it is time to see what the brilliant actors are up to in 2015. Did they continue acting? Can you see the British stars in a current hot Hollywood production? The answers to these questions are in the list below.
1. Hattie Morahan (Elinor Dashwood)
