Actors and actresses from original Jane Austen adaptations (PP, SS, E, MP, NA, P) in modern films or other period dramas

After watching A Little Chaos (Kate Winslet, Jennifer Ehle, Alan Rickman, Phyllida Law, Rupert Penry-Jones, Alistair Petrie) and realizing that so many actors/actresses have played in Jane Austen adaptations, I’ve decided to make a list about films where Jane Austen ‘characters’ played together. I’m afraid the list is not full, however I spent more than 2 days to find most of the films with most of the actors. I haven’t examined serieses such as Downton Abbey, Casuality, Game of Thrones, EastEnders etc only films and some period dramas. They not necessarily met or interacted on screen or shared a scene, but they were in the same movie. I’ve also listed actors and actresses who had minor role, like a maid, a footman, etc.
I’ve checked the actors/actresses in the adaptations of
Pride and Prejudice: 1938, 1952, 1958, 1967, 1980, 1995 and 2005
Persusasion: 1951, 1961, 1971, 1995 and 2007
Emma: 1948, 1972, 1996 (both), 2009
Sense and Sensibility: 1971, 1981, 1995, 2008
Northanger Abbey: 2007
Mansfield Park: 1983, 1997, 2007
