Matthew Macfadyen As Mr darcy
Macfadyen is well known for his performance as Mr. Darcy in Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice (2005). Fitzwilliam Darcy is generally referred to as Mr. Darcy, was one of the two central characters in Jane Austen’s 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice. He was an archetype of the aloof romantic hero, and a romantic interest of Elizabeth Bennet, the novel’s protagonist.
The story’s narration was almost exclusively from Elizabeth’s perspective; the reader was given a one-sided view of Darcy for much of the novel, but hints are given throughout that there is much more to his character than meets the eye.
The reader gets a healthy dose of dramatic irony as Elizabeth continually censured (with some prejudice) Mr. Darcy’s character in spite of the aforementioned hints (via the narrative voice and other characters’ observations) that Mr. Darcy was really a noble character at heart, albeit somewhat prideful. Usually referred to only as “Mr. Darcy” or “Darcy” by characters and the narrator, his first name is mentioned twice in the novel.
