In Marjane Satrapi’s graphic novel Persepolis, the author explores Marjane’s development from an innocent young girl to a rebellious teenager, in order to illustrate Marjane’s change as an effect of the negative religious changes during the revolution.

Gillian Anderson’s performance can be considered particularly original because she gives Miss Havisham a child-like aspect, with a little girl’s voice. This is perhaps at first unlike what one would imagine, but quickly becomes believable, specially because she was left by Compeyson at a quite young age and therefore she maintained her childish personality, also seen in her will to punish people so she is not the only person suffering.

So let 's assume that Jolly gets paid what maybe $6-7 dollars an hour?
