It’s been 11 years since the Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason and the moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived- the return of Mr Mark Darcy, the character who has been capturing hearts on screen since the very first film stormed the charts way back in 2001.
After the first glimpse of Renée Zellweger in character as our favourite spinster Bridget Jones emerged last week, fans have been desperate to know of Colin Firth’s return as Mark Darcy, and with a spoiler courtesy of new character Patrick Dempsey through Twitter, the fans got the news that they eagerly awaited.
Looking ever so handsome (though a tad older, of course) Colin Firth was spotted for the first time on Thursday afternoon on the set of the third instalment of the popular movie franchise.
Though the script of Bridget Jones’ Baby is being kept oh so secret, it isn’t really hard to guess some of the storyline from the obvious title giveaway and the photographs from the film set that have released everywhere.
There’s no news as of yet on Patrick Dempsey’s character, though he’s rumoured to be a new love interest for Bridget now that Hugh Grant has revealed that he’s not going to revive his role as love rival Daniel Cleaver- disappointing fans all over.
We personally would love Hugh Grant to return as Daniel and perhaps recreate the infamous “fight scenes” with Mark that got us laughing so much in the first and second films.
Whatever happens though the film is sure to be a big hit with the loyal fans and we cannot wait for it to be released!
