- This review of The Forsyte Saga Series 2 by Rob Owen from the February 08, 2004 Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says:
“…This was an instance of impeccable casting, particularly the two leads, British actors Damian Lewis and Gina McKee…Lewis is quickly proving himself to be one of the finest young actors of his generation. He was at the center of HBO’s “Band of Brothers” as Maj. Winters, and he’s the tightly wound, emotionally constricted center of “The Forsyte Saga,” Soames Forsyte, a possessive man who loves more than he is loved…It’s a tribute to the story, writing and Lewis’ performance that Soames is more multidimensional than he so easily could have been.”
- Helen McCrory appears as “Mrs. Radcliffe” in the new film Becoming Jane and can be briefly seen in the film’s trailer.
