Colin Firth's waxwork is unveiled at Tussauds

Wednesday December 14, 2011

Oscar-winner Colin Firth has taken a bow as the latest new exhibit at Madame Tussauds.

The actor – who took his Academy Award earlier this year for The King's Speech – has been recreated in wax at a cost of £150,000.

He has gone on display at the London attraction in the A-list section, alongside fellow Oscar winner Kate Winslet and David and Victoria Beckham.

The actor, renowned for his dashing demeanour, is captured at his red carpet finest in a black textured tuxedo, complete with bow tie and pocket handkerchief.

Tussauds this month celebrated the 250th anniversary of the birth of founder Marie Tussaud.

A spokeswoman for Tussauds said: "Colin is one of the hottest leading men of our time, an Oscar winner and a true British gent."
