Do you think the Tudors Anne is an exceptional Anne? Like do’ya think they presented and showed her right. I want a resource that has Anne as right as can be. Do you understand what i’m saying?

I would not say that "The Tudors" presented Anne Boleyn "right" but they did a better job than "The Other Boleyn Girl". I think Genevieve Bujold, in "Anne of the Thousand Days", is closer to what Anne looked like, with her dark eyes and hair, but Natalie Dormer did a great job at showing Anne's intelligence, feistiness, charm, wit and magnetism. The main faults for me in "The Tudors" were:-
- They did not really show Anne's faith. She had a very strong religious faith with Reformist views.
- They still presented Anne as a "puppet" who was manipulated by her father and uncle when I'm not sure there is evidence to back that up.
- Anne was still presented as a woman who "trapped" Henry and dangled her virtue as bait, whereas there is no evidence that Anne did that. When Henry pursued Anne she actually rejected him and retreated to Hever.

I hope that helps but it all depends on your views regarding Anne as to whether you think it was a good representation of her.

    I agree that Genevieve Bujold was closer to what Anne looked like. And even though i completely loved Natalie Dormer as Anne i just don’t believe Natalie looked anything close to what real Anne did. But Natalie’s portrayal was great and i cryed like a baby in those 2 last episodes in season 2 because she was so believeable. I wish i could go back and send at least 5 minutes with her just to see her.

      I didnt mind Natalie physically only becuase she is very…..different looking. Not what we have seen necessarily from Anne’s suppossed paintings, but Natalie is by no means a “classic” beauty. And I liked that because she had to play the character with strong magnetism and allure as opposed to just flipping her hair and smiling and using her looks.

    I would disagree. I think Natalie Dormer’s looks present a much more realistic view of what I think Anne would look like than Genevieve Bujold. Also, Anne’s Reformist views were presented, though not as strongly until later episodes once she had won Henry over. I will concede the same plot of her family presenting her to Henry was portrayed, but this has neither been proven or disproved. We must remember that women were unfortunately used as pawns for their families machinations, no matter how intelligent or strong willed. Though she may have her own views, there must be some room to view that the initial motives of Anne’s interactions with Henry were motivated by her family, just as her cousin Catherine’s would later be.
