The Day Brody died… :(

I know I said earlier here that when I found out about Damian Lewis cast as Henry VIII in Wolf Hall I thought about calling Alex Gansa to thank him for killing off Brody… But it was an impulsive reaction just because I was psyched about that fantastic casting! Otherwise, I am still at the same place more than a year later.

I dreaded that day coming for months. Because, I knew it… I didn’t really know it, but I saw it coming, and I told everybody but nobody believed me! My friends said: “Oh, no, they will never kill Brody!” And, in particular, my husband said: “They will never kill the chicken that lays the golden egg. It would be very stupid.” And my lovely friend promised me: “If they kill Brody, we will make a video clip as a tribute.” And, as the critics rolled the drums louder and louder saying Brody should have been dead long ago, we just repeated the conversations above!

Damianista is a Fashionista: Let’s talk about the Aquascutum Ad

In one of the scenes filmed on the banks of River Thames in London, Damian Lewis was dressed head to toe in Aquascutum.

Wolf Hall Episode 1: Best Birthday Gift Ever :)

Wolf Hall finally arrived on BBC2 last night! BIG thanks go to BBC for making Wolf Hall the best birthday gift ever!

I will watch the mini-series as religiously as I read the books, and I want to talk a bit about my favorite scene and my favorite line from each episode without giving away spoilers.

“Three-Card Trick” was a slow-paced episode,  in which we met the main character Thomas Cromwell, and found out about his sad personal story. We also got to see Cromwell in different settings and in conversation with other main characters, including Cardinal Wolsey, Thomas More, Anne Boleyn, Duke of Norfolk, Richard Gardiner and his family members. The episode basically brought Thomas Cromwell to life, and set the scene for Wolf Hall.
