Pride and Prejudice: What the Actors Look Like 24 Years Later
The mini-series, consisting of 6 episodes and filmed by the famous work of Jane Austen, became the seventh, but perhaps the most famous film adaptation. Colin Firth looked great in the role of Darcy, and the BBC, who became the creators of this series, very accurately conveyed the content and atmosphere of the novel. But we have not seen many actors since then, so we decided to find out where they are and what they are doing now.

The famous British actor was born on September 10, 1960. Moreover, before the picture “Pride and Prejudice”, few knew about it.
