Actress Romola Garai says she is thrilled to portray the heroine of 19th century novelist Jane Austen's classic Emma for the BBC. Garai, 26, said she has long been a fan of the 1815 literary classic that follows the life of a young privileged woman named Emma Woodhouse, The Daily Telegraph reported Saturday. I'm incredibly excited and honored to be taking on the role of Emma, who is arguably Jane Austen's greatest heroine.
