Further to a feature published on 28 November 2011 based on an interview with Lyn-Marie Cunliffe – which was provided by an agency – she has asked us to make clear that she does not “live her life dressed as Charlotte Bronte”.
She occasionally dresses as the author as part of her work – she owns over fifty costumes from various periods along with accessories and props as part of her business – but does not harbour a passion or obsession for the Brontes.
She has made clear she did not refer to her husband as her Mr Rochester or say that she thought of Heathcliffe while walking her dog.
We are happy to clarify her position.
Here is the story we have previously published :
Do you come Eyre often Mum who lives the modern life dressed as Charlotte Bronte
Eyre everywhere: Lyn-Marie even wears the period dress in her local McDonalds. She likes going to the burger chain because lids on drinks limits the chances of staining her clothes
Lyn-Marie says: “I went into Sainsbury”s in jeans once, and the checkout girl told me to go home and come back as Charlotte”
