Briony Garai

In December the 25 year-old English actress Romola Garai played the middle "Briony" in Atonement. Her next project is Richard Eyre's (Notes on a Scandal) infidelity drama The Other Man. She plays... wait for it...


It's like that time when Kate Winslet went from inflicting violence upon actress Sarah Peirse in Heavenly Creatures only to become the character of Sarah Pierce in Little Children. But still, Romola's little coincidence is odd. Briony/Bryony being such a very common name and all ;)

What are you talking about. I know LOADs of Briony's. Can't walk down Oxford street with say "Hello Briony" at least twelve times.

I remember doing a post about the Kate Winslet/Sarah Pierce thing. I also noticed this Briony thing on imdb a while back, and found it even weirder. But yeah I assume Briony is a more common name across the pond.

And um HI, every BSG season so far has had a "to be continued..." first episode, what did you expect?? But please let's not talk about BSG here anymore, cause I'm still in the middle of Season 3.

Romola Garai was my favorite Briony Tallis in "Atonement" and I can't wait to see her next projects.
