A Decade of Romola Garai

romola; glorious 39

Made for picspammy.

Romola Garai is my favorite actress in the world. As I was collecting photos for this picspam, I noticed how different she looked in every film. She's so versatile and I know the next decade will be amazing for her.

The Last of the Blonde Bombshells as Young Elizabeth
This was Romola's first acting role. She was scouted at her school by a casting agent.

Attachments as Zoe Atkins

Perfect as Charlotte
Unfortunately, I couldn't find any photos from this. :(

Daniel Deronda as Gwendolen Harleth
Daniel Deronda is probably one of my favorite tv serial, and I adored Romola in this. Normally, I'm not a fan of characters like Gwendolen, but Romola has a way of making all characters, no matter how annoying, likable.

Nicholas Nickleby as Kate Nickleby
She had a relatively small role in this, but, of course, she was amazing in it. I'm so sad that her character and Jamie Bell's character couldn't get together, though. :P

I Capture the Castle as Cassandra Mortmain
This is probably my favorite role of hers. She was just so amazing as Cassandra. The only thing that could have made this better was if she had actually gotten together with Stephen.

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights as Katey Miller
I have to say this movie was a lolfest. It was not the best performance for her, but she and Diego Luna dancing was the most epic thing ever.

Vanity Fair as Amelia Sedley
This was probably the first performance I saw Romola in. Right off the bat Amelia was my favorite character.

Inside I'm Dancing/Rory O'Shea Was Here as Siobhan
I saw this movie while I was going through my James McAvoy phase, so it was a great surprise when Romola turned up. She was exceptional.

Calico as Lucia Joyce

The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant as Mary Bryant
HER ACTING. Oh my gosh, if anyone sees this and denies that she's a fantastic actress then that someone deserves a slap in the face. This was so good!

Renaissance as Ilona Tasuiev

Scoop as Vivian

As You Like It as Celia
Romola was hilarious in this role. All Kenneth Branagh adaptions of Shakespeare are amazing, and this one was no exception.

Amazing Grace as Barbara Spooner
I loved her hair in this one, for one. I've also read that she prefers to dye her hair, not wear wigs. So bravo, Romola!

Angel Deverell as Angel
This is probably her finest performance. The director, François Ozon, called Romola "his muse." She received a standing ovation during one of the screenings. Angel is not the most likable character, but Romola made me love her.

Running for River as Blair

*I forgot to include her performance as Nina in "The Seagull."

Atonement as Briony Tallis - Age 18
Random trivia: She was Joe Wright's first choice for Elizabeth in Pride & Prejudice (2005) before Keira Knightley auditioned. He still liked her so much that he gave her the role of Briony after the original actress had to drop out. She filmed her scenes in less than two days.

Great Performances: King Lear as Cordelia

The Other Man as Abigail

Glorious 39 as Anne Keyes
I have not seen this yet, but I can tell it will be amazing. The cast is fantastic, and even the trailers show that Romola will be a wonderful job. See it in theatres when it comes near you and support her!

Emma as Emma
For me, Emma is the most annoying literary character ever! I almost didn't see this serial because I didn't like her, but saw it to see Romola. It was probably my bias, but I loved her as Emma, which is saying a lot.

gorgeous picspam!
I need to watch more of her movies.;D

Her movies are the best!

Thank you!

This is soso pretty. ♥~ She's had some amazing roles. I'm so jealous of her life; she got to act with James twice and Ioan as well. :9 Great choice for a spam; she's very underrated.

I love your icon! Bright Star = &hearts

I'm also jealous she got to make out with Henry Cavill!

The number one thing I love about her is her versatile she is. She is a true actress like Meryl Streep. She can play femme fatale or a naive innocent successfully.
1st-Jan-2010 09:32 am (UTC)
Definitely! It's amazing how she looks like different people in all of her roles.

Beautiful picspam! And so many movies I need to watch.


She is so lovely... she kind of glows, you know? And she radiates sincerity, which is SO RARE in the film industry.

Thank you!

Get to watching! :P Her movies are fantastic.

I love watching her interviews because she's so smart and funny. She's also blunt sometimes. It's nice to know her publicist isn't writing her every word.

Pretty icon!

What a beautiful picspam- the colouring is lovely. And I completely agree with what you said about Emma! The most annoying of Austen's characters (I think even Austen said something to the effect of how on one except her would really like Emma), but Romola Garai managed to play her with this element of such unbridled enthusiasm that it made her endearing.

Ah, she's gorgeous- and you've now made me want to watch so many of her other movies!
1st-Jan-2010 09:37 am (UTC)
Thank you so much!

I really hope you enjoy all of her movies. I wish I could have actually capped scenes instead of just promo pics but in most cases, I had to make my own screencaps. I was too lazy, haha.

I just discovered her in Emma and now I see that I have seen her before in a few things but I had no idea how many roles she has played. I need to get me some of these! What a lovely picspam!! :)
1st-Jan-2010 09:38 am (UTC)
Enjoy her movies! They are fantastic.

Thank you so much!

This is a very lovely picspam!

The only thing that could have made this better was if she had actually gotten together with Stephen.

I think that's the general consensus with that movie. Personally, I loved it but she should have ended up with Stephen.
1st-Jan-2010 09:39 am (UTC)
I half-think that my love for Cassandra/Stephen was because Henry Cavill was so cute in that movie, haha.

Thank you!

I Capture the Castle was the first thing I saw her in also, so good!
I just bought Angel the other day, I definitely need to watch it. Her and Michael Fassbender? HAPPY TIMES.
