Mark Rylance.

I must admit that I hadn't thought of him in the part, but I'm a great admirer of his work and I think he'll be good.

Many apologies for DM link - I couldn't find it reported in any other papers.

Everyone who has played Anne I can think of (in grim productions admittedly) really overdo the arch and the femme fatale pouting.

absolutely Gerrof.

Anne Boleyn is such an enigma anyway. I have never really believed in a portrayal of her.

Hilary Mantel doesn't write Anne as a romantic heroine or passionate femme fatale, more like a sharp political operator. I think for that reason she'll have to be played very differently to any previous screen portrayals.
