Austen Week: The men of Austen

It's Friday! What better time to share some eye candy and look at a selection of some of the Austen men portrayed over the years.
Who is your favourite portrayed in each film?

Mr Darcy

George Knightley

Henry Tilney

Frederick Wentworth

Edmund Bertram

Edward Ferrars


  1. I like Matthew MacFadyen (as Mr. Darcy) the best! I've always loved that version of Pride and Prejudice, too. :D

  2. Mhhmmmm, I love me my Austen men.

    For Darcy: Matthew MacFadyen
    George Knightly: Jeremy Northam
    Henry Tilney: JJ Feild
    Wentworth (my favorite of them all):Rupert Penry-Jones
    Edmund: Nicolas Farrell
    Edward Ferris: Hugh Grant

  3. I love Matthew McFadyen, he has that intensity I'm looking for. And look at those eyes! Sigh. But I do love Colin Firth also. :)

  4. All great choices!

    Sierra, who doesnt love him! I think whats great about that version is that its shorter, so the actors need to put in all the extra effort to make it great!

    Carole, thanks for sharing your favourite with all of them, I absolutely agree with all your choices! Although with Edward, I like Dan Stevens too as I got a bit of a crush on him in Downton Abbey,hehe. And Rupert Penry-Jones.. amazing!!!

    Sarah, Its hard to pick between Matthew and Colin so I know your pain :)

  5. This is a very old post but since I saw it I can't help adding my two cents--

    Mr. Darcy: Colin Firth
    Mr. Knightley: Jonny Lee Miller
    Henry Tilney: JJ Feild
    Frederick Wentworth: Rupert Penry-Jones
    Edmund Bertram: Nicholas Farrell
    Edward Ferrars: Dan Stevens
