Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy in Pride & Prejudice
Richard Armitage as Mr. Thornton in North & South
In an interview with the Anglophile Channel which was put on YouTube today, Mr. Armitage commented that Mr. Thornton didn’t have a wet shirt as Mr. Darcy did. Both were deemed hot & sexy 19th century literary heroes in the days following their television debuts. But I don’t think Mr. Thornton needed a wet shirt to make him hot & sexy. Mr. Richard Armitage succeeded in doing that just by taking off his cravat! Phew!
