A blog from an extra..with pics

A fencing Jason Isaacs--in tights, no less!! Sorry--a historical drama concerning machinations and maneuverings in the court of Spain's Philip II, erstwhile husband to England's Queen Mary Tudor and dispatcher of the ill-fated Armada. Velvet and ruffed collars. Unfortunately, it appeared only sporadically in theatres, and is tough to find even on DVD.

Could you post the link, Char? It would be nice to give them credit.

BTW, very cool snaps. Looks like they're practicing the fencing scene there. Either that or a form of Spanish martial arts. :D

The costumes from this film are exquisite. Every time I see them, I'm amazed at how sumptuous they are.

Great pics, Char! Man, he looks so handsome in this character.
I agree, they must be rehearsing their fencing/dueling scene. Wish it was going to play in the U.S. :-(
