Biography

Early life

Firth was born in Grayshott, Hampshire, England, the son of Shirley Jean (née Rolles), a comparative religion lecturer, and David Norman Lewis Firth, a history lecturer and education officer for the Nigerian Government.[1][2][3] Firth has a sister, Kate, and a younger brother, Jonathan, who is now also an actor. Firth's parents were born and raised in India,[4] because his maternal grandparents, Congregationalist ministers, and his paternal grandfather, an Anglican minister, performed missionary work abroad.[5][6][7][8] Firth's name is pronounced very similarly to the Old English word collenferhð, meaning pride.[9] Firth spent part of his childhood in Nigeria, where his father was teaching. He lived in St. Louis, Missouri when he was 11. He later attended the Montgomery of Alamein Secondary School, a state comprehensive school in Winchester, Hampshire, and then Barton Peveril College in Eastleigh, Hampshire.

Following these earlier roles, it was in the 1995 BBC television adaptation of Jane Austen's classic Pride and Prejudice that Firth gained wider renown. The serial was a major international success, and Firth became known as a heartthrob because of his role as Fitzwilliam Darcy. This performance also made him the object of affection for fictional journalist Bridget Jones (created by Helen Fielding), an interest which carried on into the two novels featuring the Jones character. In the second novel, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, the character even meets Firth in Rome. As something of an in-joke, when the novels were adapted for the cinema, Firth was cast as Jones's love interest, Mark Darcy.

Colin Firth (1243 words)
Colin Firth seemed to have established himself in parts calling for an actor who could play younger than himself (he retained a dewy, youthful look well into his late 20s), shy, sensitive, reserved, usually a virgin and naive to the ways of the world.
Firth richly deserved the wide praise he received for his portrayal of Lawrence, which never descended into sentimentality, and yet kept the viewer rivetted on his determined battle for health and independance.
Firth was chosen for the role at the end of a long casting process that seemed to have auditioned every youngish male actor on two continents - Richard E. Grant and David Duchovny were considered for the role at different stages.
