Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in BBC Pride and Prejudice  » Episode 2

“You have to be very careful not to make him either too idiosyncratic or too bland, and the danger is that you don’t dare to do anything at all. So you have to take over and say, ‘To hell with it, he’s mine now. I own this character and he has to be me.’”
