I love reading and writing about spirited heroines and brooding, but charming heroes. Maybe that’s why I’m a fan of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. Haven’t read the book in a long while–need to do that again!–but in the past several months, I’ve managed to watch both the BBC version and the later feature film.
Here’s a controversial opinion for you: As much as I adore Colin Firth in just about everything he’s acted in, it’s Matthew McFadyen who captured my heart as Mr. Darcy. Why?
It’s in the eyes. Those longing eyes he directs toward his beloved Elizabeth.
That same expression got me when my husband, Dan, looked at me that way thirty-three years ago! 😍 (p.s. It’s our anniversary today!)
You knew this question was coming, didn’t you? To enter the giveaway, tell me: Colin Firth or Matthew McFadyen as Mr. Darcy?
Drop a comment below with the answer and feel free to name more of your favorite brooding heroes in books or movies. I love to see these guys come around, don’t you?
I hope there won’t be any battles in the comments over these questions! LOL
