Images from the film Shakespeare in Love (1998 - Miramax Press Kit). Mr .Firth has also played Mr. Darcy in the recent BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, turning many heads with various damp-shirted scenes !

kyle maclachlan

Kyle played Paul Atreides, Muad'Dib, in David Lynch's epic film version of Dune, the novel by Frank Herbert. He also starred in Lynch's brilliant, dark and disturbing Blue Velvet, and as the marvellous Agent Cooper in the TV series Twin Peaks (another Lynch project). In complete contrast, he had a supporting role in the Flintstones movie, as a corporate snake who tried to set Fred Flintstone up ! Always eminently watchable.

john de lancie

John is best known as the irascible Q from Star Trek : The Next Generation. He and John Vickery are sometimes mistaken for one another by fans ! He is not unlike to Mr. Vickery in appearance, and his style of acting and general presence on screen are also similar.
