Creative Genius Dead at 41

Silverstone: “…shocked and dismayed…”

In news just handed to me, the creative genius behind hit films, CluelessBridget Jones’s DiaryBride and Prejudice has died.

Perhaps better known these days for her novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, she was once revered for her wit, intelligence, light touch and moral clarity.

When asked to comment on the news, a shocked and dismayed Alicia Silverstone is reported to have said, “I am shocked and dismayed, I thought she was long dead.”

Keira Knightly, who famously portrayed Lizzie Bennet in the film, Pride and Prejudice is said to have reacted thus on hearing the news, “She’s dead? I can believe it.”

But it is her younger fans who will find her sudden demise most shocking and it is to them our thoughts must turn.

Let us join them in their grief in the only way we can. #RIPJaneAusten.

Colin Firth had this to say after learning of her passing.
