Colin Firth’s Mr. Darcy Further Immortalized with 12-Foot Statue in Lake

Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy Further Immortalized with 12-Foot Statue in Lake

Remember that iconic moment in the BBC’s “Pride and Prejudice” when Colin Firth’s Mr.Darcy has just gone for an impromptu lake swim, and his soaked undershirt clings to his body, with those irresistible damp tendrils of hair hanging in his face? We know you do. (And if you need a refresher, we have video below.) Well, that moment is now further immortalized with a twelve-foot-tall statue in the middle of London’s Serpentine Lake.

Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” recently had its 200th anniversary, and we deemed the 1995 mini-series, starring Firth and Jennifer Ehle, as the gold standard of the novel’s adaptations.

Great fun! According to the work's creator, "99 percent" of those who saw the statue, "knew it was Darcy. Although, one thought it was Elvis!"

That statue looks like "Attack of the Fifty Foot Firth."
