The actor. I love Penry-Jones as actor, but I prefer Ciaran HInds as Captain Wentworth.
When I see Ciaran Hinds I relate to him more for his other roles, like Mr. Rochester, and Aberforth Dumbledore.
Hmmmm...both? Although I would have to say in the case of Capt Wentworth...the actor! =)
The character-Although the actors that have portrayed Captain Wentworth in the movies embodied the character, I fell in love with him in the pages of Persuasion.
I think for me it might be both in this case, with other JA heroes it's the character more so than the actors.
Persuasion was the second JA novel I read and I can understand falling in love with him while reading the book. I think since I was exposed to him before Darcy explains why Capt. Wentworth will always out rank Mr. Darcy in my book.
I think is the character, although Rupert is lovely and really perfect! :)
