Firth is credited as a co-author on a study into the differences in brain structure between people of differing political orientations.
Even though Colin Firth has been acting since the mid 80's, it was his portrayal of Mr. Darcy in Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice in 1995 that caught the eye of the world. Roles in The English Patient, the Bridget Jones films, Love Actually, and eventually The King's Speech - just to name a few.
Firth is a political activist and speaks out for human rights, and perhaps its the time he spent in Nigeria as a youth that drives him to support rights of indigenous tribal communities, as well as active with Oxfam.
