  1. Same here regarding The Last of the Mohicans and being a fan. Favourites include Mohicans, The Aristocrats, Daniel Deronda, Gentleman Jack and Tipping the Velvet.

    1. She was very beautiful in Bye Bye Blackbird. Sort of a strange movie but she was very good in it. I loved her gypsy dance.

  2. I also first saw her in Last of the Mohicans, which I was just rewatching the other day, actually. As much as I enjoy Daniel Day-Lewis, I thought Uncas was hotter and Alice had the better deal love interest-wise. Except for how things turned out. . . .

  3. Her final scene in The Last of the Mohicans is so haunting and beautiful. Like others, I’ve been a fan ever since.

    1. In that scene where she turned and looked at the camera for one second before she stepped off she looked exactly like Madeline Stowe who played her sister. I was blown away by how they almost looked like twins in that scene.

    1. Wasn’t that a weird production? I had the impression about half of it was improvised, and that probably the whole thing was shot on budget in a week (hence the bad, bad French hoods?), although J.M. was an interesting choice for Anne; she shifts from plain to radiant in seconds. And will F.F. ever do a long piece on “Aristocrats”? Geraldine Somerville and her Irish lord with the foot fetish!

  4. I love her so much! Not historical, but I was pleased she had a brief spot in Game of Thrones too. As a huge Thomas Hardy fan, her acting style was just perfect for bringing these characters to life, and I have actually seen most of these works. I especially love her as Elizabeth Jane in Mayor of Casterbridge. She has the delicacy to bring these complicated and nuanced characters to life. Please do a Thomas Hardy article! He writes from the late 19th century, but a lot of his works take place in the 1830s. However, the Woodlanders is my favorite novel, and while Jodhi is perfect for Marty South, I hate that adaptation!

    1. I bought the mini-series The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard and wasn’t disappointed. Jodhi stole the series. She was so excellent in every scene she was in and it really showcased her amazing talent.

  5. I adore Jodhi May. I have been a fan of hers for a long time. I resemble her a little but am not as beautiful. I wish I could meet her someday.
