Justine Waddell

Whatever happened to Justine Waddell? She shined as Molly Gibson in "Wives and Daughters," appeared in countless other period films before that, such as, "The Woman In White," "Anna Karenina," "Tess of the D'Urbervilles," "Great Expectations," and "Mansfield Park." Then after "Wives and Daughters," she fell off the period film map. I want her back. She has been in a few films since then, but nothing nearly big enough to match her talent.

This list shows her film work, which seems rather short. Guess she chose her projects well since many are some of the most-loved period films.

Mishen (2009)
Thr3e (2006)
The Fall (2006)
Chaos (2005)
The Mystery of Natalie Wood (2004)
The One and Only (2002)
Dracula (2000)
Wives and Daughters (1999)
Mansfield Park (1999)
Great Expectations (1999)
The Misadventures of Margaret (1998)
Tess of the D'Urbervilles (1998)
Anna Karenina (1997)
The Moth (1997)
The Woman in White (1997)

There is a blog which keeps updates on her. I hope one day soon she'll take on another literary role. In the meantime, here are a few of her film roles presented as music videos, from youtube:

Wives and Daughters

Tess of the D'Urbervilles

  1. I totally agree that it's been too long since Justine's been in a period drama.
