Summary

In this interview we hear from two of the cast members of Audible’s Original Drama of Jane Austen’s Emma - Isabella Inchbald and Emma Thompson. Isabella plays our protagonist, Emma Woodhouse, and Emma Thompson voices the narrator.  

Thompson has previously worked on screen adaptations of Austen’s novels, including writing the screenplay of Sense and Sensibility, for which she won an Academy Award for the Best Adapted Screenplay. The film is still considered one of the all-time best screen adaptations of a Jane Austen novel and inspired the resurgence of Austen adaptations. She also features as the narrator in Audible’s production of Northanger Abbey.  

Isabella Inchbald is a newcomer in comparison but very well versed in voice work, winning the prestigious BBC Carleton Hobbs Award 2017, and is perfect for our heroine, Emma Woodhouse.  

In this interview Emma Thompson and Isabella Inchbald discuss Jane Austen’s famously unlikable lead character and Austen’s enduring appeal, and Emma shares some acting advice and wisdom with Isabella.

very informative<br />

This is the first time I've come across audible sessions and to choose Emma Thompson and Isabella Inchbald was fantastic. The whit and humour between them and the knowledge giving by Emma to Isabella was so nice to see.

Robin Morgan-Bentley was ideal as the interviewer as he let the. actors talk but only talked when needed

This interview is free on Audible and relate to Emma Thompsons narration of Emma by Jane Austen. after reading his interview I got the book.

Loved it!

Basically Emma Thomson giving advice, which is the best thing ever! Both narrators sound fantastic, I think that classics on audiobook are a splendid alternative for those who can't gel with the writing style of the olden times.
