7 Absolutely Swoon-Worthy Period Drama Men and the Actors That Brought Them to Life ...

COMMENT

I am a huge sucker for period drama men.

They're so charming and proper, and let me just say that most of them can wear the crap out of a cravat (as you can see, I'm less proper than the period drama men that I'm swooning for.) So, when I'm watching a period drama, I'm really critical of the actors playing my favorite men.

These are the men that took their roles to heart and really brought my favorite period drama men to life!

1. Colin Firth: Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice

Talk about a swoon worthiest of swoon worthy period drama men.

That scene with him and the swim in the pond is still being talked about, almost 20 years later!

Colin Firth brought the proud arrogance of Mr.

Darcy to life, but he also brought his sweet, loving side to life.

In my eyes, Colin Firth is Mr.

Darcy so when I read the book, I picture him in my head!

2. JJ Feild: Mr. Tilney, Northanger Abbey

Northanger Abbey is kind of Jane Austen light brew.

It's a little more...

silly than Ms.

Austen's other books but, JJ Feild made me fall even more in love with Mr.

Tilney, a man willing to forsake his father and fortune in order to be with a girl who, let's face it, was a little naive for the majority of their time together.

JJ Feild made us see Mr.

Tilney as the man in love that he was supposed to be and, he's pretty easy on the eyes if I do say so myself.

3. Rupert Penry-Jones: Captain Wentworth, Persuasion

Rupert Penry-Jones: Captain Wentworth, Persuasion

I know that this list is seeming a bit Austen heavy BUT, the woman knew how to write the perfect man.2

Captain Wentworth is so cold in the beginning, and it isn't until about 30 minutes before the movie ends that we see his soft side but boy howdy, I don't think anyone could play aloof and still attractive better.

Rupert Penry-Jones really brought the loving hopeful man to life, but more than that he made us fall in love with the incredibly heartbroken man and made us hope against hope he would wind up with the woman he wanted.
