Filming of BBC Drama Emma by Jane Austen

The filming of BBC drama "Emma" by Jane Austen took place in Chilham Kent during April 2009. The drama stars Romola Garai, Jonny Lee Miller, Michael Gambon, Tamsin Greig, Robert Bathurst and Jodhi May.

The four-part adaptation by Sandy Welch's of Austen's comic masterpiece Emma was produced for BBC One. Jonny Lee Miller (Byron, Eli Stone, Trainspotting) plays Mr Knightley, Emma's shrewd and attractive neighbour, whose strength of character is in sharp contrast to her father, providing a welcome counterpart to the headstrong protagonist.
