This is what 12 feet of Colin Firth looks like
LONDON (AP) It's Colin Firth, but not as we know him. He's 12 feet (3.7 meters) tall and made of fiberglass.
A statue of brooding Mr. Darcy, the character played by Firth in "Pride and Prejudice" has been installed in London's Serpentine lake.
The figure shows Darcy emerging from the water in a soaked shirt, recreating a scene from the 1995 television adaptation of Jane Austen's novel.
The scene helped turn Firth into a sex symbol and is regularly voted among Britain's most memorable TV moments.
Lead sculptor Toby Crowther said the work took the lake scene as a starting point but also drew on other depictions of Austen's romantic hero.
The statue was placed in the Hyde Park lake Monday to promote a new TV channel dedicated to British drama.
