I'm sure all you costume drama junkies have noticed the phenomena of unattractive "attractive" characters. It's a tale as old as time: the Brits and the Americans disagreeing about pronunciations, vocab and what is pleasant to look at. Let's look at a brief list of characters that are written as so ravishing and unblievably attractive they inspire entire monologues and lead to hasty and rash decisions by the heroes.
|Jodhi May in everything is beautiful enough to inspire proposals, rape and choosing her over Romola Garai?|
|Irene from The Forsyte Saga inspires rash proposals, affairs and rape bc she's SO beautiful?|
|Jane from Pride and Prejudice '95. NOT the prettiest.|
|Did someone forget to change the writing ab how hot the Doctor is after David Tennant left?|
|Angel from the newest Tess of the D'Urbervilles, named Angel bc he's so great...?|
|You all know Daniel Craig's face is actually not attractive right?|
