Original script. Rain scene, different beginning.
Mr. Darcy: I trust your family is in good health, Miss Elizabeth?
Lizzy: They are, thank you.
“And we were really lucky because we had historians come in and give us lectures and we had etiquette lessons and all that kind of stuff, It was good because I think doing a piece like this you have to learn the rules to be able to know how to break them. So it was good to be clear about what the rules were.”
Did Matthew Macfadyen live up to your expectations of Mr. Darcy?
Absolutely! A hundred and fifty per cent. I mean, he blew away my expectations of the character. He is the perfect Mr. Darcy.
Jane: You cannot think me so weak as to be in danger now.
Lizzy: You are in great danger of making him as much in love with you as ever.
Joe just kept saying that he believed in me, which is amazing because all actresses are, by nature, completely insecure beings. If they say that they’re not, they’re lying. It’s a profession made out of insecurities. You’ve got to use them all.
So, to have somebody say, `I believe in you, you can do this´ is absolutely extraordinary. He [Joe Wright] was so sweet and he kept saying, `I’m going to keep you safe darling, don’t worry about it´.
