Colin Firth says ‘Mr Darcy myth’ is a mythMarch 7th, 2008 - 4:20 pm ICT by admin
London, Mar 7 (ANI): He might have played the perfect English gentleman Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, but according to Colin Firth the ideal of quintessential Englishman is a myth.
The 47-year-old actor thinks that the stereotypical character portrayed by himself and other British actors like Hugh Grant doesn’t exist in real life and are just creations of film, TV and literature.
Ive decided the quintessential Englishman I play doesnt exist, The Daily Express quoted him, as saying.
I play him but you dont run into him very often.
There arent very many Mr Darcys out there. I think hes a figment of our folklore, or film lore, he added. (ANI)
