Tudoriffic by suburbanbeatnik Tudoriffic by suburbanbeatnik
This is some random Tudor woman I sketched in the winter of '04, and I must be prescient, because my notes in the margin read: "Looks like Natalie Portman? ... Actually Natalie Portman would make a great Anne Boleyn..." And lo and behold, guess who was hired to play Anne Boleyn in the upcoming "The Other Boleyn Girl", a few years after I drew this? Natalie Portman, that's who!!

Dang, I'm psychic- like Allison DuBois or something. I should be making money off of this!

Marvellous prediction of yours, dear ;)
You should name who would make a wonderful Kathryn Howard - perhaps, this way, the next time the book 'The Boleyn Inheritence' gets into a movie, we will know already the name of the actres... :dance:

Really cute interpretation.
I thought the same thing about Natalie Portman when I first read the book. Then I thought that Scarlet Johanson would be a great Mary. I think the Casting Director was channeling our spirits :P

Hehe- maybe!

I need to write a review for the movie and post it to my group, :iconlamodehistorique:. I was actually pleasantly surprised- but then I was expecting something really bad. It was actually okay! Much better than the book, in any case. ;P

Thank you! :D Tudor clothes can be fun, can't they? All that heavy brocade, gaudy jewelry and gable hoods...

Yeah! I much prefer French hoods, way more elegant.

The French dressed so much better than the English at this period, it's really rather funny... ;P

I know, the English took all their fashions from the French. Except the Gable hoods.

lmao i thought it was supossed to be Natalie! ahaha

thats why i clicked the thumb. I think she'd be a great Anne Boleyn (not because im a big fan of her's) but because its just true.


People just need to forget all about Star Wars, give her a chance.

Lucas can't direct actors to save his life... I thought Natalie did a great job in "Garden State" and "Anywhere But Here." I'm looking forward to seeing her as Anne Boleyn!

I know! People dont understand "if u DO NOT have a good director; the actors WILL suck int he movie."

She did good in Leon *heh* i love Leon. WHOA!!! and V for Vendetta. Damn that woman can cry. Mmm!!

I really really REALLY want to hear Anne and Mary screaming at each other in Boleyn. That'd be the most awesome thing. I love it when Nat has to act angry in a role (V!!!!!).

I don't really like Scarlett Johanson that much anymore. I hear shes a real 'bitch.' I can't really say if she is or not; I've never meet her. But, I am avoiding her until the movie comes out. I'm seeing her too much on TV. I don't want to get sick of her, lol.

I really like Scarlett.... I think she's talented and beautiful, and I don't want to get on the Scarlett-bashing bandwagon I see a lot on messageboards. Maybe the fame is going to her head, maybe she's not very pleasant in person... who knows? *shrugs* I don't want to meet her; I just want to enjoy her movies.

Anyway, thanks for the watch and the fav... Glad you like my stuff! :D

yeah who knows? She always seemed friendly in her interviews that I've seen. It may be true, or they just may be jealous and want to hate her for something, lol.

Your welcome on the fav. I admire your patients with the designs!

Johnny Depp? Really? Huh..I'd never thought of that before. I wouldn't mind seeing David Hyde-Pierce in the role!
