Nadia Clifford and Tim Delap, who play Jane Eyre and Mr Rochester in the National Theatre and Bristol Old Vic production, visited the Book Hive on Tuesday where they spoke about their experiences of the well known novel.

Ms Clifford said: 'I first read Jane Eyre when I was about 14, and straight away I felt such an affinity with Jane, and with so many characters in the novel. And then I read it again at about 21. Obviously I re-read the book when I got the part, and I was reminded of how many emotions I experienced the first time I read it, and how much I identified with it as a teenager.'

Mr Delap said the stage adapation remained very faithful to the book, including all the best bits from the novel and all the key moments in Jane Eyre's life.

'We've just added a huge amount of theatricality to it and we've told it in a really exciting, theatrical, visual way,' he said.
