My favourite Mr. Darcy

THE LOOK Fitzwilliam Darcy in Pride and Prejudice

For those who don't know:

I'm a Colin Firth-Addict. I adore his acting, the way he transmittes emotions just through his bodylanguage and his most expressive eyes. Really amazing! In my humble opinion no reasonable and sensible woman can actually stay calm with his performance. To be swept off your feet is just inevitable and nothing but a logical consequence!!! (Maybe I'm exaggerating ...just a VERY little.... but who cares? I for my part certainly not. *lol*)

He didn't get the attention he deserved. (Maybe because he is a really private person who shields his private life as much as he can.) I'm positive that will change now with his wonderful appearances in the future.

I truly recommend to those of you who are puzzeled about all this to watch (for a start) the mini-series Pride and Prejudice (BBC, 1995), Bridget Jones's Diary (2001, the sequel is due in summer 2004), The Advocat (former: The Hour of The Pig, a real killer for lawyers like me!!), The Importance of Being Earnest (adaption of the Oscar Wilde play, brilliant!!) and do read his short story in Nick Hornby's "Speaking with the Angel" which was published to gain money for a British School for autistic children. (You can see his filmography and my comments on his movies on my Colin Firth Movie Page .)

Colin (ODB = Our Dear Boy) always tries to use his popularity to support charity. He actually managed to get a London cinema to do a charitiy screening of Love Actually to support Survival International (the only international organisation who supports tribal people all over the world to prevent more genocide, land thefts and so on). He is also an active member of Trade Fair.

Colin and his wife now turned producer for a documentary with Amnesty International about the imprisoned political activist and former Black Panther member, Mumia Abu-Jamal, who's death sentence for killing a police officer was overturned in 2001 due to errors made during his original 1982 sentencing hearing. It is called "In Prison My Whole Life". See for further details.
Marc Evans with whom ODB made "Master of the Moor" and "Trauma", wrote, co-produced and directed it.
