TVGuide: Why Anita Briem left The Tudors

Jackson: I am a fan of The Tudors and recently found out that Annabelle Wallis will replace Anita Briem as Jane Seymour in Season 3. Do you know why Anita left?

Mickey: I'm hearing that Briem who costars with Brendan Fraser in this summer's Journey to the Center of the Earth chose not to reprise the role. On the upside, Wallis lists basketball, rollerblading and hip-hop-dancing skillz on her resume, so those sure will come in handy!


Hmm... that wasn't a very clear answer but I'm guessing she didn't want the chance to pass up a movie and probably didn't want to do any nudity if she stayed on the show.


And for those wondering, yes that Jackson who asked the question was me. :D

Anita was very beautiful but she did not suit the costuming. I don't mean to be harsh but she so clearly had breast implants and seeing them "heave" in her corset was really disgusting. You could see the circular outlines of the silicone clearly across her bony chest.
Very very un-Tudor like.

Well you may be right but then again you may be wrong, who knows? All the women on that show have their breasts heaved up high in those tight dresses. And for some gives the impression of larger breasts. Natalie Dormer is a good example. In her corset she appears to be pretty big but in her nude scenes we saw her breasts were averagish size.

Yeah, corsets and bodices squeeze real tight not only in the waist, but also in the breast area. I've worn both for costume purposes and it made mine look totally fake. Having a bony structure makes it look even more fake since there's no natural padding around the breasts. Besides, how someone's breasts look is completely irrelevant to the quality of the acting. If you are gonna use the word 'disgusting' to describe heaving cleavage, there's something seriously wrong. O_o There are a lot of things is this world far more deserving of that word.

silly cow, what a role to give up... that Journey film sucked. Well, she didn't have long left in the show anyway recalling my history lessons.

I have nothing against lady Briem, but lady Wallis looks more like how I imagined Jane Seymour, so I'm not crushed. We'll have to wait and see how she grasps the role. I hope they improve lady Seymour's scripting, up'n'till now it's been all gasps and ooh. Granted, she wasn't as strongwilled as lady Anne was, but it's not as if she couldn't talk. So, we'll wait.
