Trivia

On his experience filming the series, Eddie Redmayne had this story to tell: "The director, Tom Hooper said "One last thing: Eddie, have you ever been on a horse?" I said "Yes." Cut to Lithuania, two weeks later, a huge Elizabethan street, Helen Mirren and Jeremy Irons are standing at this balcony, and there's Tom, cameras, rain machines, 50 Lithuanian extras, spurs attached to my feet, and I'm thinking, "At what point do I tell them that I have never, ever ridden a horse?" It was then that I realized a big part of the cliché of actors lying in auditions is that you should probably try to do the thing you said you can do before filming starts. Anyway, I nearly killed people as the horse galloped off at a hundred miles an hour after I gave it the slightest nudge. Tom came out with his megaphone and shouted, "You're a liar, Redmayne!".

Goofs

Although Elizabeth is portrayed as travelling incognito to meet Mary Stuart (Queen of Scots), the two famously never met. They did communicate by letter and Elizabeth often expressed her wish to meet Mary but she always insisted that would only happen once Mary had acknowledged Elizabeth's right to the throne of England.

one heck of a movie
28 May 2006 | by (WV, United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the movie was wonderful! I cant get enough. I will purchase the movie when it goes on sale. Everyone was excellent in this movie!I think this is the best piece of work Helen mirren has ever done. Jeremy Irons is perfect for his role. Hugh Dancy Did great as the Earl of essex. As I was getting ready to watch the movie I was bouncing off the walls ,as I am a huge admirer of Good Queen Bess. As many movies as I have seen, I still learned from this one. I think it was nice to see, that hough she was powerful she still craved the love that we all crave .Sadly it was really never obtained. I hope everyone will watch this movie .
