Damian Lewis Nominated for Satellite Award: Wolf Hall

by Damianista – Fan Fun with Damian Lewis – December 6, 2015

Damian Lewis and his Wolf Hall co-star Mark Rylance are both nominated for a Satellite Award by the International Press Academy in the same category, Best Actor in a Miniseries or a Motion Picture Made for Television.  Damian’s top performance in a top production is top of the line!

Henry is a man whose, in Damian Lewis’ words, “…ability to love and then to simply discard is sociopathic.”

Henry’s various moods were perfectly demonstrated in Damian’s top notch performance.  We give you the many facades of Henry VIII in Wolf Hall:

28 Historic Properties Were Used in BBC2’s Adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Novel – Producer Mark Pybus Reveals His Favourites

Wolf Hall, one of Wolf Hall’s most successful ever period dramas, depicts the meteoric rise of Thomas Cromwell: the son of a lowly blacksmith who rose through the ranks of the Tudor court to become Henry VIII’s trusted advisor.

The series was not just a triumph for its star Mark Rylance – it also showed the wealth and luxury of Tudor Britain like never before.

Director Peter Kosminsky insisted on filming the entire series on location. “All those small details add up and make a significant difference,” explains series producer Mark Pybus. Some of the properties were actually used by Henry VIII five hundred years ago.

Chastleton House, Oxfordshire
Chastleton’s small stone courtyard doubles for Putney, where we see Cromwell as a young man being viciously attacked by his father. The interiors stand in for the Seymour family home, Wolf Hall, where Henry first falls for Jane Seymour. “The Seymours are on the up when we first meet them, before Jane becomes queen,” says Pybus. “It’s one of the only properties in the drama that has a shabby feel. We wanted to get across that they’re not as rich as other people in the show.” It’s possible to visit this ancient house, first built by a rich wool merchant, and now managed by the National Trust.
