5. Sir Laurence Olivier
Here’s Olivier playing Fitzwilliam Darcy alongside Greer Garson in the 1940 adaptation of Pride & Prejudice.
4. Martin Henderson
Don’t you wish you were Aishwarya Rai? Lalita Bakshi was the Elizabeth Bennet to Henderson’s William “Will” Darcy in this 2004 Bollywood adaptation, Bride & Prejudice.
3. Elliot Cowan
If only we could all trade places with Elizabeth Bennet. Then we could get a sampling of Cowan’s irresistible Fitzwilliam Darcy in this 2008 adaptation, Lost In Austen.
2. Matthew Macfadyen
Fans agree that Macfadyen’s Fitzwilliam Darcy is just as faithful to the character in Austen’s book in Joe Wright’s 2005 adaptation of Pride & Prejudice.
1. Colin Firth
Here he is. The man who defined Austen’s leading man. Firth played Mr. Darcy not once - but twice! He was Fitzwilliam Darcy in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride & Prejudice.
And Mark Darcy in the 2001 feature film, Bridget Jones’s Diary.
