To say we're excited to see Johnson take on a modern Anne Elliot is an understatement. Despite still loving her fiancé, Frederick Wentworth, Anne is convinced at the age of 19 to break off the engagement. Eight years later, unmarried and facing bankruptcy, she reconnects with the love she thought she'd once lost. Now independent and confident in what she wants, Anne feels her future is up to her, not her family.
Best known for her role as Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey series, Johnson is no stranger to the romantic drama. We can't wait to see what she does in the role and with Cosmo Jarvis as the mysterious Captain Wentworth.
