I liked both of them (in, fact, I've liked most of the actors who have played Darcy). However, out of all of them, I think Matthew may be a little bit ahead of Colin ;-).
I prefer Colin Firth actually. Matthew isn't bad, but, he's not Firth.
When I write, I usually have either Colin or Matthew in my head, but for my werewolf story, I've got Richard Armitage from North and South on my mind. He looks like a wolf to me.
Matthew! Loved him as Mr.Darcy and in every other role I've seen him. For me HE is Mr. Darcy.I like Colin Firth too and liked him in Bridget Jones' ('I love you just the way you are') Diary. But for me, he comes in a distant second after Matthew.
I have always loved Matthew. He is soo handsome and just what I pictured Darcy to be like in my mind. His eyes captivate me!
I cast my vote for Laurence Olivier!! I know I'm in the minority, but, what can I say? I love his portrayal of Mr. Darcy!
Meredith, As soon as I saw that thin purple line next to Olivier's name, I knew you had voted. You are not in the minority b/c minority implies more than one person, and I think you are all by yourself. Ha! Ha!
He is soo handsome and just what I pictured Darcy to be like in my mind. Work from home India
HA HA! Mary, I knew you wouldn't be surprised by who I voted for!! I'm okay with being Olivier's only fan!!
