Diana's Love Triangle Line Revamped For The Tudors
One of PRINCESS DIANA's most famous lines is to feature in the upcoming second season of TV hit THE TUDORS after producer Michael Hirst insisted on putting it in the mouth of HENRY VIII's mistress-turned-second wife Anne Boleyn. Hirst was so excited when he realised Henry's love triangle with Boleyn and his first wife Catherine of Aragon mirrored that of Prince Charles, Diana and Camilla Parker-Bowles, he insisted on making subtle links. And when Boleyn scolds Henry, played by Jonathan Rhys Meyers, raging, "You can't have three people in a marriage," Hirst admits the words are lifted straight from Diana. He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "I was very naughty. I had Anne Boleyn say it because it was an extraordinarily similar situation. "I like the fact that I can put in these contemporary references, just to point out that things don't change that much." The second season of the hit period drama debuts on Sunday (30Mar08) in America.
