Biography:
 
The son of two university lecturers, Firth was born in Hampshire on 10 September 1960. Part of his early childhood was spent in Nigeria with missionary grandparents, but he returned for schooling in his native country and eventually enrolled in the Drama Centre in Chalk Farm. While playing Hamlet in a school production during his final term, the actor was discovered, and he went on to make his London stage debut in Another Country.

Some of his more notable work included A Month in the Country (1987) and Valmont (1989). Firth was propelled into the media spotlight and rewarded with a BAFTA award for his portrayal of Mr. Darcy in the popular TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (1995).

In 1996, Firth appeared as Kristin Scott Thomas' cuckolded husband in The English Patient. He garnered praise for his role in this film, which went on to win international acclaim and Academy Awards. After appearing in A Thousand Acres (1997), he starred as Gwyneth Paltrow's intended husband in Shakespeare in Love (1998).

Firth's next supporting role in the comedy Bridget Jones's Diary (2001), earning him a BAFTA nomination, preceded a more weighty performance in the chilling drama Conspiracy (2001), earning him an Emmy nod.

After returning to romantic comedy in Love Actually (2003), Firth made a turn as a haunted widower in Trauma (2004) as well as returned to familiar territory in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004).
