Colin Firth is an actor of British origin, a recognized sex symbol of Britain in the mid-1990s. He became famous thanks to the role of Mr. Darcy in the TV series “Pride and Prejudice”. And for the main role in the film “The King’s Speech” Colin was awarded an Oscar in the category “Best Actor”.
The imperfect smile of the ideal man
Firth, like all British actors, did not strive to make his smile look perfect.
Colin was born on September 10, 1960 in the British town of Greyshot in a family of teachers. At the age of 5, Firth moved with his family to the Winchester town of Montgomery, where the future famous actor spent his childhood.
Colin received his school education at the Alamein School, but Firth’s memories of his school years are not very happy.
Colin began to master the basics of the acting profession right after school, going to the Drama Center of London. There he made his debut on the theater stage.
For several years Firth tried to conquer the audience and film critics with his acting. However, he managed to win their favor only 11 years after the start of his career. Perhaps people didn’t like his very unconventional smile.
Whether the actor made the decision to align his teeth on his own or was advised by stylists is unknown, but the result was not long in coming. Soon Firth was invited to the role of Mr. Darcy, which made him a real star. After the resounding success, Colin did not stop his visits to the dentist and continued to improve his smile.
