NEW YORK, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- British actor Colin Firth said he might some day reprise his iconic Darcy role on-screen, but the project would have to be really good for him to do so.

Firth, who can now be seen in the movie musical "Mamma Mia!," played the reserved romantic hero Fitzwilliam Darcy in the 1995 BBC miniseries version of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice."

He also played Mark Darcy in the modern version of the tale, "Bridget Jones's Diary," as well as its sequel, "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason."

Asked if he would ever return to the role, Firth told UPI: "I remember being on the set of the second ('Bridget Jones') with Hugh (Grant) one day and one of us asked the other, 'Do you remember saying yes to this?' 'No, never did!' ...

"Then, once the process was in motion, it had that kind of air of inevitability and then you would have had to be the one to unglue it all. So, if there was a third one, it might be like that. We might all come back as a kind of dysfunctional family again," he quipped. "It would have to be pretty damn good, I think."
