On Season 2’s fan-favorite “holy Tilda Swinton” line: “I wish so badly I could tell you that was ad-libbed. That came out of the brilliant mind of Karen Walton. She was the one who wrote the episode. That was a writer’s line. I wish I could lay claim to that because it’s so great.”
Famously, Anne Boleyn was not a beauty: she was more about quirkiness and an innate sensuality, and there are a lot of references to her eyes. Which sends out a great message for women, because life is not about the aesthetic all the time.
