British actor Matthew MacFadyen studied at the prestigious Royal Academy of Dramatic Art before beginning his career on the stage. He joined the renowned theater company Cheek and Jowl, with whom he participated in productions of The School for Scandal, Much Ado About Nothing, The Duchess of Malfi, and other plays. In 1998, he made a much-noticed transition to the screen with the role of Hareton Earnshaw in a television adaptation of Wuthering Heights. He would go on to appear in such films as Enigma and Almost Strangers before being cast in the lead role of Tom Quinn in the spy series MI-5 (aka Spooks) in 2002. He stayed with the series until 2004, and the next year he made yet another foray into period drama, playing the male lead of Mr. Darcy in a big-screen adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, opposite Keira Knightley. He soon followed it up with a turn in the quirky comedy Death at a Funeral in 2007, before signing on for the 2008 Ron Howard film Frost/Nixon. MacFayden would continue to appear on screen in several series to come, most notably on Little Dorrit, The Pillars of the Earth, Any Human Heart, and MI-5.

QUOTES FROM Matthew MacFadyen CHARACTERS

Elizabeth Bennet says: I wonder who first discovered the power of poetry in driving away love.

Mr. Darcy says: I thought poetry was the food of love.

Elizabeth Bennet says: Of a fine, stout love it may. But if it is only a vague inclination I'm convinced one poor sonnet would kill it stone dead.

Mr. Darcy says: So what do you recommend, to encourage affection?

Elizabeth Bennet says: Dancing. Even if one's partner is barely tolerable.

Mr. Darcy says: You have bewitched me in body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you.

Elizabeth Bennet says: (Playing the piano) You mean to frighten me Mr. Darcy by coming in all your state to hear me. But I won't be alarmed even if your sister does play so well.

Elizabeth Bennet says: [playing the piano] You mean to frighten me Mr. Darcy by coming in all your state to hear me. But I won't be alarmed even if your sister does play so well.

Mr. Darcy says: I love you, most ardently.

Elizabeth Bennet says: I don't understand
