From his early life in Nigeria to dashing Mr. Darcy to a mantelpiece groaning with awards fromThe Kings Speech—the first biography of one of our greatest actorsFrom the moment Colin Firth took on the role of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC adaptation of MoreFrom his early life in Nigeria to dashing Mr. Darcy to a mantelpiece groaning with awards from The Kings Speech—the first biography of one of our greatest actorsFrom the moment Colin Firth took on the role of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, emerging from the lake in that scene, he was set on a path from sex symbol to Hollywood star.

This first-ever biography discusses each role in that trajectory, ranging from Hugh Grants love rival in Bridget Jones, to an Oscar-nominated turn in A Single Man, to a portrayal of George VI in The Kings Speech that has elevated him to Hollywood royalty. It also traces the inside story of his rift with Rupert Everett, his playful rivalry with Hugh Grant, his escape to Canada with Meg Tilly, the birth of their first son and his heartbreak as the relationship floundered, the passionate affair with Pride and Prejudice costar Jennifer Ehle, and his whirlwind romance with his Italian wife, Livia.

Fascinating, revelatory, and suffused with Firths own dry wit, this is a must-read book on a fascinating artist.
