Battle of the Wickhams!

Having recently written about the various portrayals of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet in film/TV, it seems only fair to weigh in on the perfidious (but oh-so-charming) George Wickham!

So, we’ve got . . .

Adrian Lukis in the ’95 A&E production of Pride and Prejudice . . .

. . . Rupert Friend in the ’05 film version of P&P . . .

. . . and Matthew Goode in the ’13 miniseries Death Comes to Pemberley . . . 

Whereas in previous posts I’ve had some pretty strong opinions as to the “best” one, here I’m stumped. I think that each of these actors was marvelous, although Rupert Friend, in my opinion, struggled with a too-limited role. Who’s your favorite Wickham?

I adore pink, plus I love fashion from the past, so this 1870s ensemble really knocks my socks off!
