RADIO // Beyond the SubtitlesColin Firth, Easy Virtue
Hosted by Stephen Schaefer
Originally aired 6/22/09
A touchstone of British comedies and period pieces, Colin Firth discusses Easy Virtue, a breezy update of Noel Coward’s 1920s melodrama that transforms the little-seen play into a raucous comedy of manners. Already widely acknowledged as having given the definitive portrayal of Darcy in 1995 Pride and Prejudice, Firth opens up about the art of acting, his choice of roles and why co-star Kristen Scott Thomas should not be seen as Easy Virtue's villainess (21 minutes).
