Three degrees of Jane

Figured out my error? I said connect Frances McDormand and Romola Garai through their JA characters. I meant connect Frances O'Connor and Romola Garai through their JA characters.

Thanks to Susana Ossandon for the riddle solution because I never would have connected them. Frances McDormand played opposite Jonny Lee Miller in Aeon Flux. Jonny Lee Miller played Mr. Knightley in the recent BBC production of Emma opposite Romola Garai.

What is your solution to the real riddle? Can you connect Frances O'Connor and Romola Garai through their JA chracters?
