Toby Stephens the greatest actor on earth, unusual talent, great personality, very intelligent, very charismatic. Reminds me of Gregory Peck, or Clark Gable. After watching "Jane Eyre" 2006, couldn't watch any other movie, real masterpiece. Watched also "Onegin", very good movie.

Toby Stephens is a most versatile and talented actor; extremely handsome too. He was magnificent in Jane Eyre, with his smoldering masculinity that made the ladies swoon. His performance as Mr. Rochester will be hard to surpass. Recently, he has performed on the London stage in Betrayal and The Country Wife to rave reviews. I hope to see more of this incredible actor on film, TV and stage.
