You had such great chemistry with Matthew Macfadyen in “Pride and prejudice”, I’m almost disappointed he plays your brother in “Anna Karenina”.
I think we all really enjoyed playing with that. It was funny. Joe and I did a domestic abuse ad for a charity in England a couple of years ago. It’s quite a shocking ad; I get beaten up by my lover. He actually did have a moment where he said, “Let’s get Matthew to do it because that would be amazing.” I did actually put my foot down and say, “You cannot have Mr. Darcy beating the shit out of me on a TV ad!”

Matthew Macfadyen TFF 2005, “Pride and prejudice” press conference.
“Macfadyen says it’s interesting, meaning annoying, that people are so proprietorial about the BBC version, even though it was, he hears, “fantastically good”. Flattering as it was to begin with, Colin Firth was stuck with the Darcy “bodice-loosening” nonsense for years, long after he had moved on. Does he fear that the same might happen to him? “No,” he says. “I don’t think it will happen, for one thing. I would worry if I was offered James Bond.”
oh so darcylicious….so macfadyen
