Natalie Dormer's Anne Boleyn -- An Acting Triumph For The Ages, 13 September 2011
Author: Dan1863Sickles from Troy, NY
I cannot say enough good things about season two of THE TUDORS. Natalie
Dormer really gives the performance of a life time as Anne Boleyn.
Queen Anne has so many different sides to her personality -- defiant,
courageous, outrageous, a temptress, a feminist, a martyr, a mother, a
rebel, and so much more. And Natalie Dormer just makes it look easy in
every scene, going from thrilling courage to heart-breaking loneliness
to terrifying sexual mastery and power! To show how important this
character really is, this episode literally kicks off inside Anne's
head, with a terrifying nightmare sequence that looks like something
out of an old Vincent Price movie. Poor Anne is asleep and dreaming
that she's to be burned at the stake as a witch! It's just like that
old horror classic, WITCH FINDER GENERAL, except that this witch is
beautiful, brilliant, and ambitious. Even her dreams are daring and
Later in the episode, we get to see how devastatingly ruthless, cruel and manipulative Anne can be in real life, as she desperately corners the king for one last round of high-powered nasty sex, complete with tons of snarling, scratching and strangling. No wonder people think she's a witch! By the end of the episode, you can really see Anne's days are numbered, yet her courage and charm are so great that you just want history to somehow change at the last minute. The final image in this episode is Anne dancing for joy because she's pregnant again -- but somehow you know nothing can save her.
