  1. Colin Firth seems to have gone against the way of male actors, They always seemed to me at least to become more handsome as they grew older and matured, but somehow I don’t think Mr Firth did/does. I doubt Miss Bennett would now consider him handsome, wet shirt or not! 🙄

    • I am so glad to hear from you, Brian. You’ve been on my mind for several days.
      Twenty years is a long time. Firth was 35 (older than Darcy’s 28 years) in 1995 when the mini-series came out. Jennifer Ehle was 26 (older that Elizabeth Bennet’s 20 years). Did you see Firth in “Kingsman”? He looked quite fit in that one.

  2. n and h for insertions thanks Regina 🙂

    Wow what a line up! Great list Regina. I didn’t know Colin played Mr Darcy 😋
    I must get my hands on that 1958 adaptation!
