I'd be surprised if we saw Shelley or Byron. I'd even expect them to probably cut Hunt out. My timeline is sketchy, but were Keats and Hunt even on good terms toward the end of Keats's life?

Though I'm wondering if Fanny K might make an appearance. . .

Hunt and Keats we're not really on great terms by the time he met Fanny in 1818 and many date his falling out with almost everyone: Haydon, Hunt and the rest to his meeting with Fanny.

I really hope they do show Fanny Keats and also George in some way, as they were central to his concern after Tom's death.

If not it would be like giving Oliver Twist 10 siblings :roll:

Speaking of who'd play Shelley, I watched a movie about Shelley, Mary Shelley, and Byron's friendship--I think it took place about the time Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein. Anyway, this was a few years ago (say, 10 or 12) but the guy who played Shelley was Eric Stoltz, an American actor. He did a *great* job--he had all the mannerisms down, even the high pitched voice Shelley was proported to have, and all very realistically done. I guess the only reason I mention this is that there has been at least one decent portrayal of Shelley on screen. Wish I could remember the title of the movie. . .it was one of those "soon forgotten" films, but it was pretty good, actually.

Eric Stoltz is a great actor but he's now about 47 and Shelley died when he was 30 :lol:

Well I did say it was 10 or 12 years ago :lol: I guess I'm in a bit of a time warp--Crispin Bohnam Carter. . .Eric Stoltz. . .if this movie had been made 10 years ago, we would have been set! ;)

Did you know - useless piece of trivia of the day.

Eric Stoltz was the original Marty McFly in Back To The Future - he even filmed a lot scenes with Christopher Lloyd before being replaced by the director.

How different his career, and Michael J. Fox's would have been if he had kept the part....
