Ashford Affair Spotlight: Caroline Martin as Addie

Name: Caroline Martin

Dream Character Casting for the Lauren Willig Dream Movie Adaptation: Addie

First Impression: He Knew He Was Right. Playing the young Dorothy Stanbury she is heartbreaking when she tells her Aunt Stanbury that she will not marry Brooke Burgess because her Aunt doesn't wish it. When she confesses that she loves him so much and she never thought that she could be loved in return then was she melts that hard Aunt's heart and everyone gets a happy ending I cried and cried.

Why they'd be the perfect actor for the Lauren Willig Dream Movie Adaptation: She has the look to match Rachel Stirling, so they could be cousins. But more importantly, she has that bookish, independent nature, or at least through her acting I envision she has, that would lend itself to Addie. Also, she has an appearance that you might first overlook, but when she smiles it lights up the room.

Lasting Impression: He Knew He Was Right. She got it in one.

What else you've seen them in: She actually hasn't been in much, but what she has been in she was memorable, ie, He Knew He Was Right. But she did hit the big murder mysteries, with Inspector Lynley, Poirot and Foyle's War. She was also in Byron with Johnny Lee Miller and the much touted film, Happy-Go-Lucky.

Can't believe it's them: She was in Byron... I really need to rewatch that sometime, because I remember very little of it...

Wish they hadn't: Left Foyle's War! Ug, she was perfect for Milner and then they recast her! Now, I don't know if this was her decision or not, but the new Mrs. Milner has no chemistry with him. I mean they had a spark, you rooted for them, and then we get her recast with a milksop!

Bio: She originally was going to be an Astrophysicist, but then she became involved in the Edinburgh Footlights and was cast as Sally Bowles and that, as they say, was that.
