    Seems I know more about who played Henry, than I do about who played Anne.

    I did a bit better in this quiz then other quizzes, so still hope for me

    I did pretty good! There were only two I didn’t know. I am dying to see Damien Lewis as H8. Though I have my issues with HM and Wolf Hall, I am very excited to see it just to see how well the cast does. I have been a big fan of Lewis since he was in Dreamcatcher.
