Not sure if we have done this before, but I thought it would be fun to put our casting caps on. As far as I know there isn’t another version of Pride and Prejudice in the works. It will probably happen eventually though so let’s pretend that some fabulous director is taking a new, fresh stab at what Andrew Davies and Joe Wright have already done. For this exercise I did quite a bit of research into the British actors currently on the scene who I thought could fill the shoes of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet. Below I have images of my choices and a poll for you to select.
Some information before you choose–
I didn’t randomly select pretty faces. I only chose British actors of the proper age – ie: Men near 30 and women in early 20s – and all have acting credits to their name. I wasn’t terribly concerned with coloring because hair can be dyed or wigs worn, but kept to a “look” for each character I thought would fit.
I have links for each actor to learn a bit more about them if you are unfamiliar. Be thoughtful in your choices as I was!
These are the only options for this poll. However, if you have other suggestions – being serious, mind you – then mention them in the comments. I may revamp the poll in the future to arrive at the ultimate Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth. If you want to toss in suggestions for other characters, feel free and perhaps we can have a poll of them too. But the focus here are the main characters of P&P.
