Cosmopolitan interviews actress Jessie Mei Li from Netflix’s latest fantasy series, Shadow and Bone.
Another big change from the books is the relationship between Alina and General Kirigan. Alina has so much more agency in the show.
Exactly. Rather than the plot happening to Alina, the writers made sure that she made the decisions throughout the story, which was just such a smart move. We need to see her making these choices.
So when things turn more intimate and more romantic, Alina's the one who kind of makes the first move, and that was important. Ben Barnes refers to it as sort of a yin and yang. They see parts of themselves in each other. But on top of that, I think given the nature of him being much older and having the power in the situation, we still need to believe that they are equals. So her making that first move, and even just the scenes earlier on in the series where she talks to him in a more confident way than she talks to other people was really important. I think they feel this connection and she does seem to be comfortable around him from quite early on, in this weird way.
How do you channel that on-screen?
Our director had loads of references for us in terms of relationships. Me and Ben watched Jane Eyre with Michael Fassbender. That relationship between Jane and Rochester, it was very influential because it's a similar thing. He needs her and she needs him. So we watched that with some Indian takeaway in the first week.

Actor Ben Barnes also mentions the influence of Jane Eyre 2011 in an article in Entertainment Weekly.
Other influences Barnes pulled from range from Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs ("that stillness and intrigue and mystery of him") to Rochester in Jane Eyre ("a coldness to him but there's a romantic in him"). (Nick Romano)
It's been a while since we had an unexpected Brontë reference in the sports section. From the rugby column in The Irish Times:
When the Racing flanker Baptiste Chouzenoux made obvious shoulder contact to the head of a Bordeaux player, referee Matthew Carley commenced an extraordinary exchange with his TMO, that more resembled an emotionally torn dialogue between Heathcliff and Catherine from Wuthering Heights. (Matt Williams)
El Popular (Peru) credits the Brontë sisters, among other women writers, with changing the history of literature.
5.- Las Hermanas Brontë
Charlotte, Anne y Emily Bronte fueron tres hermanas novelistas de origen británico, quienes tuvieron que cambiar sus nombres a seudónimos masculinos para poder publicar sus obras. Emily es la autora de la popular novela Cumbres Borrascosas (1847) y Charlotte de Jane Eyre (1847).
Son un gran referente en la lucha por los derechos de la mujer. Tuvieron la idea de crear una escuela para niñas y sus libros tratan temas sobre las relaciones prohibidas, el maltrato físico y el alcoholismo. (Translation)

'Jane Eyre', de Charlotte Brontë
La mañana del 19 de octubre de 1847 fue lanzada la crítica del periódico inglés The Atlas de un libro llamado Jane Eyre.
El crítico alababa la frescura de la obra y su capacidad para profundizar en los sentimientos de la juventud, pero la pregunta que flotaba por toda Inglaterra hacía alusión a la identidad del “autor”.
En un momento en el que el mundo editorial era copado principalmente por hombres, Charlotte Brontë adoptó el seudónimo masculino de Currer Bell (sus hermanas, Emily y Anne, se llamaban Ellis y Acton, respectivamente), para publicar una de las primeras novelas feministas de la historia.
O según muchos, una autobiografía encubierta que fundía a su autora con aquel personaje de conducta independiente y solitaria. (Alberto Piernas Medina) (Translation)
