Tudor revival

An article in the April 2, 2007 edition of Time Magazine takes a look at the renewed interest in Tudor England. "When Royals Become Rock Stars" by Rebecca Winters Keegan discusses the upcoming Showtime series The Tudors as well as movies depicting the lives of Elizabeth I and the Boleyn Sisters.

In addition to the Showtime series which begins April first, Cate Blanchett will reprise her role as Elizabeth in an upcoming film, while Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson will portray Anne and Mary Boleyn in a film version of Philippa Gregory's 2002 best-selling historical novel The Other Boleyn Girl. Johansson is also filming a movie about Mary Queen of Scots.

The print version of the magazine includes photos from the films.
