    London (ANI): He might have played the perfect English gentleman Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice, but according to Colin Firth the ideal of 'quintessential Englishman' is a myth. The 47-year-old actor thinks that the stereotypical character portrayed by himself and other British actors like Hugh Grant doesn't exist in real life and are just creations of film, TV and literature.

    "I've decided the quintessential Englishman I play doesn"t exist," The Daily Express quoted him, as saying. "I play him but you don't run into him very often. "There aren"t very many Mr Darcys out there. I think he's a figment of our folklore, or film lore," he added.
