More Jane Eyre cast details

The young cast of director Cary Fukunaga's big screen production of Charlotte Bronte's romantic novel Jane Eyre (starring Mia Wasikowska in the title role) which shot for 9 weeks in Derbyshire earlier this year is rounding out, with a number of up and coming young actors and newcomers joining the already announced cast.

13 year old Freya Parks plays Helen Burns, young Jane's (Amelia Clarkson) school friend. Freya made her feature film debut in Jon Amiel’s Creation, with Paul Bettany and Jennifer Connelly.
She has twice been cast by Mark Rylance at the Globe Theatre, in his stagings of Euripides and Sonnet Walk.
Freya attends a school specializing in the arts, where she is a dance scholar specializing in ballet.

10 year old newcomer Romy Settbon Moore’s plays Adele Varens, Mr Rochester's young ward. Romy's bilingualism – she was born in London to a French mother and a Welsh father – was a deciding factor in her playing Adele in Jane Eyre, which marked her first audition as well as her first acting experience.
Romy has been playing violin since she was 5 years old and has a passion for hip-hop dance; she has performed both activities in local shows.

Fast-rising 19 year old young Welsh actor Craig Roberts, who is set to take the acting world by storm in 2011 with his portrayal of Oliver Tate in Richard Ayoade's directorial debut Submarine, plays John Reed. Craig first made a name for himself as Rio in The Story of Tracey Beaker on CBBC. This spring he will also star as vampire Adam in Being Human spin-off series Becoming Human.

Whilst his sister, Eliza Reed, is played by 11 year old Freya Wilson (represented by Curtis Brown). Freya first started acting through a workshop at the Hay on Wye Festival.
She continued with weekly classes after school at the Allsorts theatre group. She also plays the role of the young Princess Elizabeth in the award-winning The King's Speech.
