I gave a lecture over the weekend, "Playing Mr. Darcy: From Archery to Wet Shirts," at the Chawton House Library, as part of its day-long celebration of the 20th anniversary of the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice series. The event featured scholars and actors and crew, including those who played Mr. Bingley (Crispin Bonham-Carter), Jane Bennet (Susannah Harker), and Mr. Bennet (Benjamin Whitrow), among others, along with the director, Simon Langton. The Chawton House Library released a podcast documenting the event, which includes a couple of minutes of conversation with me. What an incredible day!
