Colin Firth is a British film, television, and theater actor. He has received numerous industry nominations and awards. His most notable and acclaimed role has been his 2010 portrayal of King George VI in The King's Speech. Identified in the late 1980s with the 'Brit Pack' of new young British actors headed by Gary Oldman, Firth's rise to stardom progressed at a slower pace than many of his contemporaries. It was not until his portrayal of Mr. Darcy in the 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice" that Firth became a household name. The show was a hit in the UK and USA and established him as a marquee talent. In 2011, he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Firth has campaigned for the rights of indigenous tribal peoples and is a member of Survival International. He has also campaigned on issues of asylum seekers and refugees' rights and the environment. Firth commissioned and is credited as a co-author on a scientific paper on a study into the differences in brain structure between people of differing political orientations.
