Mark DarcyColin Firth
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
commit a crime so that you'd feel the weight of his stare as he prosecuted you.
|Everyone knows how much I adore this character. From the book to the screen, Helen Fielding did a marvelous job of creating the perfect man for thirty-something Bridget. Being a top barrister in London, he had the composure and coolness throughout the entire film that made him even further in terms of characteristics to Bridget. And yet, their differences make them so compatible.|
Who else could pull off saying all of that horrible stuff about Bridget and yet come out in the end to tell her that he liked her even with all that she's done. He becomes even more endearing when I find out that he's divorced from his Japanese wife who cheated on him with that dreadful, but cute Daniel Cleaver.
I almost choked when he said this:
Mark Darcy: I don't think you're an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements of the ridiculous about you. Your mother's pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever's in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences... But the thing is, um, what I'm trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, um, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you, very much.'
If that wasn't enough, he just had to make himself seem even more perfect with this:
Mark Darcy: I like you, very much.
Bridget: Ah, apart from the smoking and the drinking, the vulgar mother and... ah, the verbal diarrhea.
Mark Darcy: No, I like you very much. Just as you are.
Oh yes, Mark, I like you too, just as you are.
