The new face in ‘Lone Ranger’

No, I’m not referring to Johnny Depp’s face, despite the interesting makeup. All through “The Lone Ranger” last night (and more on that later, in the fullness of time), I kept wondering who that was playing Rebecca Reid, the love interest (sort of) for Armie Hammer’s Lone Ranger. Her face was familiar, but her voice wasn’t . . . and that’s because I’ve never heard her with an American accent before. She’s the British actress Ruth Wilson, best known for a small role in last year’s “Anna Karenina” (she was Princess Betsy) and for a terrific screen debut, in 2006, in the starring role in the BBC’s miniseries “Jane Eyre.” If you’re a Bronte fan and haven’t seen this, do check it out; it’s wonderfully brooding.

And, did you know that the BBC makes period-drama blooper reels? I didn’t.

Note that the dashing Mr. Rochester is Toby Stephens, son of Dame Maggie Smith.
