Depicting the life of King Henry VIII during his reign, The Tudors is a visual feast from the first episode to its last. The acting strengths of Jonathan Rhys Myers are evident here as he effortlessly embodies the role of the temperamental King; a Monarch who made his way through six wives while simultaneously navigating innumerable political issues, personal family drama, conspiracies at court and matters of faith. Myers charisma is such that he easily displays emotions ranging from thunderous fury when he is defied or angered, love and happiness, to heart wrenching pain as he sees his third wife laid out in death. The music throughout the series is extremely beautiful, but in this scene, it is both beautiful and haunting, as it conveys his utter grief and despair at the time. In conclusion, The Tudors is a lavish affair made more brilliant not just by the presence of Jonathan Rhys Myers, but by the wonderful women who played his Queens and the rest of the talented cast that populated the series. Every actor brings to life the role they are playing, and all are a pleasure to watch from one episode to the next. The Tudors is a glorious series to watch, and it does not disappoint in any way.
