Bonus scenes

Post by princess garnet » Fri May 8th, 2015, 4:41 pm

I came across a few bonus scenes from the show. (Note: Video may not play outside US)

Also, an interview and slideshow with commentary by Charity Wakefield, who plays Mary Boleyn.
Enjoy!

Just finished watching the last episode of Wolf Hall on the 479th anniversary of Anne Boleyn's death. How's that for a coincidence! Superlative acting, especially Mark Rylance, and wonderful filming that evoked the Tudor time period.

Yes the last episode was great, I thought they handled the execution scene very well. It was very evocative, beautifully made and acted.

If you ever get a chance to see the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of wolf hall, do it. My sis and I saw it on Broadway and it was one of the most amazing experiences of theatre in my life. The acting, production, script - there wasn't a wrong move here, and the audience was spell bound through both shows. Highly recommended!

*Bumping an old thread*
If you missed it the 1st time in 2015, "Wolf Hall" will be re-airing after the season 2 premiere of "Home Fires" on PBS tomorrow night. Please check your local PBS station listings.

I own both of the show's soundtrack CDs.

It should be interesting to see who will be playing the major lead roles!
