a spy in the house of love

“Darcy is twenty eight, he’s a young man who hasn’t hit the plateau of his thirties yet. He hasn’t quite hit the comfortable position were he knows who he is. Matthew approached the role as an actor in search of a character, rather than as an icon. Darcy’s parents died when he was quite young, I like to think in a tragic accident late one night, so he woke up one day to find the huge responsibility on his shoulders of the estate and the nine hundred livelihoods that depended on that estate, so he had to quickly put on the suit of manhood that didn’t quite fit him. That’s why he is the way he is, and the story is about a girl who teaches him how to be a gentle man.”
(Joe Wright, Director)

I sort of had it in my head that Darcy’s mother died due to complications from childbirth, and his father was much, much older than her and died of some gentlemanly disease.  But I kind of like Joe’s theory…
