    Plot Outline:
    A poor young English boy named Heathcliff is taken in by the wealthy Earnshaw family where he develops an intense relationship with his young foster sister, Cathy. Based on the classic novel by Emily Bronte.

    Gemma’s Role:
    Gemma Arterton plays Catherine Earnshaw.
    If Heathcliff can be considered the main protagonist of the novel then Catherine Earnshaw is the dominant female spirit which prevails the novel. She is free-spirited and beautiful, but can also be spiteful and arrogant. The love which she professes for Heathcliff is not mere romantic love; neither is it based on mere physical attraction, it is an identification, a union of souls: “Without Heathcliff” she says “the universe would turn to a mighty stranger.”
    Natalie Portman was originally cast as Catherine Earnshaw. After her departure from the film, Lindsay Lohan campaigned for the role but Abbie Cornish was eventually cast. As filming neared, Cornish was then replaced by Gemma Arterton.

  • Cast and Crew Quotes:
    • “We’ve cast it as written. Heathcliff’s a teen, and the story takes him into his early 20s. Cathy is just as young. It’s radical because usually actors playing these characters are much older. We’re very proud to have British actors.”
    – Robert Bernstein (Wuthering Heights producer)

    • “The chemistry between Arterton and Westwick will be just staggering. Arterton is known for a restrained sensuality which leaps off the screen at you, while Westwick simply drips sex. Casting was crucial and I would say they have got it exactly right. Screen magic so often relies on technology these days but you can be sure Arterton and Westwick will make it the old-fashioned way.”
    – Han Way Films executive (the company handling sales at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival)

    • “I’ve met Gemma on a couple of occasions. She’s a lovely young lady and I’m very excited to work with her.”
    – Ed Westwick (Wuthering Heights co-star)
