|Henry Cavill plays Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk, in 'The Tudors'|
Seen as a playboy in the First Season, his character becomes meatier.
|Must admit, that I warmed up to the series because of him. |
Yes, watched 'The Tudors' because of Henry Cavill!
And was absolutely thrilled.
It is one of the best in the period series, costume drama genre.
Needless to say, it is absolutely fabulous.
However, I had been initially apprehensive of the series and did not get too excited because the history of the period, the reign of King Henry VIII having been the subject of many a tale already and I did not think that the lurid excesses, some of it fictionalized, and colored by contemporary biases, would please me much.
But as soon as I got know of Henry Cavill's inclusion in the cast, I became curious.
I watched it from the beginning, with renewed zest, and felt rewarded eventually.
|The series boasts of a terrific ensemble cast, led by Jonathan Rhys Meyers.|
