Yet another Jane Austen adaptation is on its way, and Henry Golding has a new role for his fans to obsess about.
The Malaysian actor has been cast as Mr Elliot in the upcoming Netflix adaption of Persuasion, the last novel penned by Austen. Golding took to Instagram to share the first look at his character, who is the cold, unfeeling cousin of the heroine Anne Elliot, played by Dakota Johnson.
In the photos, Golding is shown wearing Regency-era outfits, complete with silk cravats, fine tailcoats and top hats. Compared to Cosmo Jarvis’ Captain Wentworth, who is Persuasion’s leading man, Golding’s character looks solemn and sophisticated.
