Obviously Emma Thompson is my favourite Beatrice. Eve Best is a close second though.

But are you sure that Benedick loves Beatrice so entirely?

Seen all but #5. Which I must watch now! Kenneth Branagh will always be my favourite Benedick.

What was it you told me of today, that your niece Beatrice was in love with Signior Benedick?

Hero thinks surely she will die. For she says she will die if he love her not, and she will die ere she make her love known, and she will die if he woo her.

waaait, I don’t know all of these. are they all adaptations of Much Ado?

Yup.

  1. 1993 film starring Kenneth Branagh & Emma Thompson
  2. 2012 film starring Alexis Denisof & Amy Acker (directed & produced by Joss Whedon)
  3. 2012 Globe Theater on Screen production (I think. IMDB has a cast list but not which characters they played.)
  4. 2011 Digital Theatre production starring David Tennant & Catherine Tate set at a beach resort in the 1980s
  5. Nothing Much To Do webseries starring Jake McGregor & Harriett Maire in a New Zealand high school version
  6. 2005 ShakespeaRe-Told episode starring Damian Lewis & Sarah Parish

Richard III

LET’S PLAY GUESS WHAT LINE HE’S SAYING.
I bet it’s “Cheated of feature by dissembling Nature, / Deformed, unfinished, sent before my time / Into this breathing world, scarce half made up, / And that so lamely and unfashionable/ That dogs bark at me as I halt by them…” (1.1.19-23)
