I have miiine.
It's strange, but when Anne remembered her childhood, and related it to her relationship with her father. I can kind of relate to what she's feeling within that relationship- At one point, he is solace and comfort, and love and protection- and then, he condemns her. Those feelings are gone. I cried. Like a baby. Her execution didn't help.
..Otherwise; every scene with her smiling, with her and Henry being lovey dovey- Her and Elizabeth; I was happy and warm and mushy inside. I loved to see her happy!
And.. yeah. What about you guys?

Hmm tough one, so many moments both happy and sad that I love…
I think one of my favourite scenes is during the masque where Anne plays Perseverance – the look that she and Henry exchange when the men storm the 'castle' is just smouldering – it's almost like he's devouring her. I think it really illustrates the passion and heat in their relationship.

Yeah, that one in 'Anne of the Thousand Days' is brilliant isn't it?! Pity Anne never got to tell Henry what she really thought in real life like that.
In the Tudors I think my favourite scene would be where Anne's created the Marquess of Pembroke in her own right. It was an amazing thing for a woman to be so elevated at the time. Plus I absolutely love the dress Natalie Dormer wears!!!!!!!!!
The 3 scenes in The Tudors which really affect me emotionally are:-
- When Anne is appealing to Henry with Elizabeth in her arms and she calls out to him “Your Majesy, your Majesty, I beseech you” and drops to her knees.
- When she is in the Tower looking out of the window when her brother and the other men are executed – those sobs are so from the heart, almost primal/animal and I just can't watch it without crying.
- The execution scene – I loved the fact that Michael Hirst had Anne saying the real words that she was meant to have spoken and also drewn on the story of the executioner distracting her. A truly incredible scene.
In my opinion, Natalie Dormer was Anne, she really brought her to life.

I have to agree with Claire – all three of those scenes knocked me out emotionally. Anne going from calling him “Henry” to calling him “Majesty” gave me chills with the desperation in her voice. And describing Anne's crying from watching her brother die is spot-on. That was raw, animalistic, completely gutted crying. Much more believable than 'pretty' crying. She displayed that in the scene of her last miscarriage, too. That raw crying, moaning as she curled up and tried to hold her baby in by main force was very believable and moving. Natalie Dormer's depiction of Anne IS how I see Anne. She really deserves kudos for her performance.

Natalie Dormer was the perfect Anne.
When Anne watched her brother die, her pain was gut-wrenching. One of the few times I actually cried.
The scene when she is walking in the garden with Henry and the ground is covered with snow. They looked so beautiful together.
When she sees Henry with Jane. She doubles over with the pain of it.
When she and Henry are cavorting in the halls.
When Henry and Anne see each other after her illness. The love in their eyes.
The dance scene. WOW! Pure animal magnetism. Loved it.
Walking to the scaffold. She looked scared yet dignified.
The execution. They stuck to history and Natalie did Anne proud.

This video is amazing, it sums up Anne & Henry to me right down to the core!
Natalie Dormer was an amazing Anne Boleyn
Thank you so much for sharing this – I am still crying and cried the whole way through – some of it is pregnancy hormones but a lot of it was just because the love was so obvious and intense and the way the story ended was so unfair and wrong.

HI I'm new here but have LOVED this site for ages! You all mentioned some of my favorites and it is so hard to choose just one, especially with how amazing I find Natalie Dormer to be.
– The most heart renching for me to see was when she watched her brother's execution. Claire described Anne's sobs perfectly and I was crying my eyes out during that scene yet at the same time in awe of how Natalie pulled that off.
– A small scene I enjoy is between Anne and her brother at Hever after Henry sent her a letter and that necklace with the cross. I just love their interaction and her attitude.
– Finally, and it probably goes without saying, is the execution scene. From her walking up to the spot, all the way to that erie blank stare at her life's end. I'm glad they used Anne's true words and captured a range of different emotions from strength, courage, fear, sadness, the list goes on. The entire scene from direction, editing, acting, and on did the execution justice in my opinion … and yes, I wept like a baby even though I knew what was coming. (I read somewhere that this was Natalie's first scene for The Tudors and after delivering the speech she got a well deserved standing ovation)
*On a side note, of course all the HOT scenes are tops but I figured that was a given. The chemistry between JRM and ND is … well, too much for words in my opinion!*

There're so many scenes I love.. 😉
The end of 5 episode when Henry and Anne are dancing so gracefully and when she winks at him. It makes me go like “Ahh”.
In the first episode when Henry watches Anne reading a book in the window and then reaches to her saying to stay like that and that she's so very beautiful and desirable. So cute how he stands and looks at her for some minutes before entering the room.
When in the second episode Henry tells to Anne about their trip to France and that she'll be presented as the future Queen of England. The way she kneels at him and looks in his eyes.
In the same episode when Henry shows her Royal Jewells and when Anne says that she loves him. It's my favourite scene of all.
In the 4 episode when they dance and Anne tells that she's pregnant again. So sweet.
In the 5 when Anne's lost her child and when Henry visits her. She looks like she's dead. ;(
Hmm, I think I should stop at this point because it looks like it's more like “favourite scene in every episode”. Well, finish with that the scene with Royal Jewells is my favourite. I of course like the execution scene of George & Anne but that one makes me sob because of thoughts about how Henry & Anne ' love ended.

Ah, can't resist listing my favourite scenes:
– Anne, at Hever with her family, receives letters and presents from Henry. Her brother teases her: there are two scenes, showing the affection between brother and sister…and the evolution of Anne's feelings towards Henry. Her face is telling when George goes 'you're not in love with him, are you?!'
– Henry watches Anne dancing at court, she stares right back at him.
– Anne created Marquess of Pembroke. She's reached the nadir, both emotionally and socially.
– All her scenes with Elizabeth. Especially the very sad moment by the pond, with Anne trying hard not to cry so as not to upset her little girl.
– Henry and Anne dancing a Volta. Whatever is left of passion between them is expressed there. both actors are superb.
– Anne begs Henry, with Elizabeth in her arms. I cried.
– The whole Tower ordeal is perfectly acted. ND expresses distress so well (be in in the manic laughing scenes 'I have only a little neck' or in the cries of despair when watching George and the others die)
– The execution is perfectly rendered.
I must say that I like all of Anne's scenes in the Tudors. Whenever I watch them again, I tend to avoid the Tower and execution scenes….they upset me too much.

Well the most emotional scenes were definately the execution, watching her brother & friends die, and when Anne had just lost her son after watching Jane & Henry kiss and she's yelling at Henry telling him it's not all her fault and it hurt her to see him love others and then he looks like he's gonna cry and go to hug her but turns into the monster he was right before our eyes. I cried so much : (
My favorite happier scene's were when Anne (Natalie) was just recovering from the sweat and Henry came to see her and she looked happy and suprised. And the scene when she decides to be his mistress and they're promising each other marriage and children. Also the scene where they first see each other at the masque.
My overall favorite scene is when Anne is crying in bed (after just losing a baby i believe)and Henry comes in and his lays down with her telling her he loves her and they just lay there wrapped in each others arms. It's so sweet and loving.
