The striped dress Daniela Denby-Ashe (Margaret Hale) wears in the final scene is the same costume previously worn in "Bleak House" (2005) by Gillian Anderson (Lady Dedlock) and in The Shadow in the North (2007) (TV) by Billie Piper (Sally Lockhart).See more »

Hollywood NEEDS Richard Armitage, 26 July 2005
Author: bufferuskers from United States

I hope there are high profile producers and directors who will seek out a DVD of North and South to see the outstanding performance of Richard Armitage. His charisma and talent are FAR, FAR BEYOND anything hyped up in Hollywood in recent years (he makes Jude Law, just to take one example, look like a grade school amateur).

This amazing performance should not be missed. I wish I had the means and knowledge to send copies of the DVD to all of the big independent producers, the studios, and directors.

This guy has "it" - talent, stature, intelligence, charisma. Anyone serious about acting should not miss Richard Armitage's performance.
