Colin Firth might be the quintessential screen depiction of Fitzwilliam Darcy, but does he actually resemble Jane Austen’s idea of the Regency heartthrob? Not so much… Academics John Sutherland, the Lord Northcliffe Professor Emeritus of Modern English Literature at University College London, and Amanda Vickery, Professor of Early Modern History at Queen Mary University of London, have taken Austen’s descriptions of Mr Darcy, and working with editorial artist and illustrator Nick Hardcastle have come up with the first ‘historically accurate’ rendering.

2015’s ‘Kingsman’ cast Colin Firth against type as a gentleman super-spy and man of action who takes young hoodie Taron Egerton under his wing as a new recruit.

Now, as ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ has just finished filming, its star Taron Egerton has significantly hyped it up. The first film starred Egerton alongside Colin Firth, Sam L.

Have we, or have we not seen the last of Colin Firth’s gentleman spy Harry Hart, AKA Galahad? It seemed reasonable to assume that Firth would not be back, as Hart was seemingly shot dead by Samuel L Jackson’s billionaire villain.
