Mary Stuart on Charlie Rose

"The throne of England is desecrated by a bastard!" Perhaps my favorite parting line ever; I'll find a way to use it this weekend, and damn the context. Perhaps it will be SarahB's birthday toast. She'll have a tough time forgetting that one!

Says Charlie Rose of Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter: "They are exceptionally well equipped not only to command an audience's attention, but also make the case that historically, she who would be queen has always of necessity been a great actress." And now I have to go see this again. Curse that Harriet Walter for being such Trouble.
