Welcome to Abbey Mead - Vol. 8

Welcome to Abbey Mead / March 2019 / Letter 8

Dear Friends of Abbey Mead,

Greetings! Last month I asked which actor you would like to see play the role of William Ferguson in a movie version of The Lady’s Desire. Here are the suggestions:

Justin Hartley (American - plays Kevin on This is Us) / Sam Heughan (Scottish - Outlander’s Jamie Fraser) / Chris Pine (American – Stat Trek / Wonder Woman / many more…)

Sigh… So hard to choose…
