Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Yeah, that one. He makes a good soldier. Tom Hiddleston is also in it (well, the second part) as a prince. :D

James Purefoy is very very lush, I loved him as Marc Anthony in Rome even though Marc was depicted as quite an unlikable character :p Went to the flicks to see Electrick Children the night before last, found it very good.

I like the guy who played Agrippa in Rome better. (He was closer to my own age.)

Watched... Little Women last night.

Watched 'Woman in Black' on DVD. A watchable movie, but I felt Daniel Radcliffe looked too young for the role. There were some scary parts and I am glad it didn't go ghoulish with body parts being thrown around.

Ah James Purefoy the only actor who stood out in Camelot :D I thought he made a brilliant Marc Antony..But 'Rome' was such a good show...The only thing that spoilt it were too many sex scenes and the violence, but the acting was superb.

Bec :) PS: I will probaby buy The Hollow Crown when it is released via Amazon U.K.

Nefret, I think that's the best one overall.
