Darcy emerges from lake

Colin Firth’s lake scene from Pride & Prejudice has been brought to life again – with a giant statue positioned in a well-known lake.

The fibreglass sculpture of the actor’s head and torso stretches 12ft out of the water at The Serpentine in Hyde Park, Central London.

It has been built to mark the launch of Drama, a new British TV channel after the famous Darcy scene topped a recent poll to find the the most memorable moment in British TV drama.

The scene appeared in the 1995 BBC adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel, which was published 200 years ago. The image of Firth emerging dripping wet from the lake at Lyme Park in Cheshire caused a stir and turned the actor into a sex symbol. 

The model took a team of three sculptors more than two months to design, construct and paint. Toby Crowther, the lead sculptor, said: “The challenge for us was capturing the spirit of Darcy as handsome and noble but also aloof and proud.”

The sculpture will tour a number of locations before being installed in Lyme Park, where it will remain until February. (PA)
