Keeley Hawes plays Queen Elizabeth in Henry VI part 2 and Richard III and Tom Sturridge has been cast as Henry VI in parts 1 and 2.
“Men still have trouble recognizing that a woman can be complex, can have ambition, good looks, sexuality, erudition, and common sense. A woman can have all those facets, and yet men, in literature and in drama, seem to need to simplify women, to polarize us as either the whore or the angel.”
Random stuff I like, including, but not limited to, vampires, redheads, writing, history (particularly the Plantagenet and Tudor eras), A Game of Thrones, pretty gothic things, astronomy, cats, costumes, roses, Tom Hiddleston, women's soccer, Black Sails, comics, the gay agenda, Loki, Barack Obama, Once Upon a Time, Doctor Who, viking threesomes, inappropriate feelings about cannibals, more vampires, girls kissing, and more redheads.
Give me redheaded vampire girls kissing under the stars while holding roses and petting their cats and I will explode with delight.
