INTERVIEW: Eric Bana on making ‘The Other Boleyn Girl’


There’s a short little primer that tells you everything you need to know about the wives of Henry VIII, the King of England before his daughter Elizabeth I (yes, the Cate Blanchett/Judi Dench one) took the throne: divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded survived. In The Other Boleyn Girl it’s that first beheaded wife we take a look at, Anne Boleyn. She convinced Henry to divorce his wife, which meant a major break between England and the Catholic Church that changed all of England to begin with. And that’s not even mentioning the fact that Anne’s sister Mary had the king first. And you thought modern sibling rivalry was ugly.

Though we sometimes think of Henry VIII as fat, ugly and crazy, in The Other Boleyn Girl he’s played by Eric Bana, who’s pretty much the opposite of all those things. With a killer Australian accent and a nice sense of humor, Bana answered questions about his research for the role, working with two actresses like Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson while staying happily married, and a handful of his upcoming projects as well.
