Max de Winter (Charles Dance) tells the girl (Emilia Fox) that he is twice her age and he could be her father. In another mini series, "Fallen Angel", Charles Dance actually plays the role of Emilia Fox's father.
The Second Mrs. de Winter:
I've just been to tea with the Vicar and his lady wife. Did I wear the right hat?
Frank Crawley: Absolutely the right hat.
Emilia Fox has both ears pierced, twice, in each ear lobe, and this was clearly visible while portraying the character of the second Mrs de Winter, even though she only had one pair of earrings in at a time. In the 1920s piercing the ear multiple times was unheard of, and did not come into fashion until the 1980s.
