Keira Knightley's Pride & Prejudice connection with a few Matthews, a Rupert Friend, a Tom Mison, and a Colin Firth!

A few handsome Darcys, a couple Wickhams, and a Bingley, please?!

How lucky is Miss Keira Knightley to have worked with these handsome P&P/Austen actors (including a few Matthews: Macfadyen, Rhys, and Goode)? Then, she was (and still is to this day) the only Elizabeth Bennet actress to be the youngest and exact same age (20) as her EB book counterpart when her Pride & Prejudice movie was released almost 10 years ago (in 2005). Now, she's also, the only Elizabeth Bennet to have worked with (most of them more than once) a few Darcy actors (her P&P movie and Anna Karenina co-star , Colin Firth of Pride and Prejudice 1995 and her Love Actually/Steve co-star, and her The Edge of Love co-star of Death Comes To Pemberley), a couple Wickhams (her ex-boyfriend and former P&P movie/The Suicide Brothers co-star and her The Imitation Game co-star of Death Comes To Pemberley), and a Bingley (her / short films co-star of Lost In Austen).
