Do not call Firth Mr Darcy
LONDON: Oscar nominee Colin Firth has confessed he is sick and tired
of being repeatedly referred to as Mr Darcy.
The British actor expressed his fury at being stuck with the name of the Pride and Prejudice character that he played 15 years ago.
“I’m not remotely interested in Pride and Prejudice in any way and haven’t watched it since doing it,” the Sun quoted him as saying. “But the word Darcy is like a phantom that won’t leave me alone, like a school nickname that sticks with you for years afterwards. It was as if I hadn’t existed before Pride and Prejudice. I was hailed as a new arrival even though I’d arrived ten years earlier,” he added.
