just happen to see a repeat of a poirot last nite in wich elliot cowan was a real piece of work and goes to the gallows at the end but what an hansome chap he is and also a very good actor i believe his playing mr darcy love to see him comming out the waterthat would be quite something else has oppose to that colin what's his name

Have just seen Elliot on the stage in London as Lord Goring in An Ideal Husband. What an actor! i could have watched him alone forever. He stole the show. By the way I have watched Lost in Austen nearly 100 times and I do not recall him CRYING so I do not know what "crying scene" is being referred to by someone who has posted a comment

If he became James Bond then they finally got a James Bond that actually looks handsome :)... Just saying... Don`t think the other ones is hot at all! :|

MariaMagdalenaMariaMagdalenaDec 31, 2010

I agree with you Mahshid :)... He is totally the best, hottest and talented actor to play Fitzwilliam Darcy!! :)

mahshidDec 30, 2010

he`s really handsome,his character as mr.darcy is wonderful and really suits him...and just him!

Just watched the most enthralling adaptation of Macbeth at the Globe. Very dramatic, sensitive, amsuing and Cowan was magnificent as Macbeth - truly talent and it has to be said hunky actor.

cjfieldingMay 4, 2010

Why does none of this credit his theatre performances? He was a stunning Leantio in the RSC`s `Women Beware Women` and is apparently equally striking in the Globe`s new `Macbeth`. Real actors don`t make their names only on film or TV.

Maria DomańskaMar 10, 2010

I have never seen such a talented actor !

CaseyFeb 3, 2010

I am truely in love with you, that scene in Lost in Austen when you were crying about your love, It was amazing! I wish we could meet.

KrystynaJan 1, 2010

I think the best your performence was the scene in London. Well done.

margaretNov 30, 2009

I liked mr beigley. I thought his performce was the best. As i liked the rest of the performers. Jemma rooper done a fanastic job and no one could have done any better.

LoredanaOct 1, 2009

Well, I found out about him through Lost in Austen as Mr. Darcy, and of course fell in love with him. In my case I guess he is too young. Well, what are 10 years after all???
