Ask A Tudor!

THE TUDORS - Season 3

Hey everyone!  I have some very exciting news, actor Mark Hildreth who plays Cardinal Reginald Pole will be answering fans questions, so submit your burning queries in the comments.

Hildreth is a jack of many trades.  When is isn’t working on The Tudors, he is a touring musician and has been performing since he was 10.  He also has a great vlog where he talks about  music, acting, growing a beard and above all he talks about The Tudors.  Check it out:

    Your character has been very secluded lately and rarely shares a scene with the other actors . Do you have a different schedule as the other actors or are you still on set when they are doing their scenes?

    a couple of questions:

    1. How do you choose your acting roles? What kind of roles do you prefer or avoid?

    2. Do you do anything particular to ‘get into character’?

    3. What are some of your upcoming plans for the next few years – are you going to focus more on your music, or do more acting?

    If you weren’t playing Cardinal Pole, what other character from The Tudors would you like to play?

    What has been the biggest challenge you encountered while working on The Tudors?

    How has it been trying to balance music and acting? Are you able to work on both at the same time, or do you concentrate on one (say, acting in the Tudors) and put the other (your music) on hold for a period of time?

    How much longer until your beard is as long as the real Cardinal Pole’s beard that you showed on your latest vlog post?

    Thanks, Mark! I’m really enjoying watching you this season!

    How is PVT wars coming along? We havnt heard much about it in along time, is it still happening?

    and I understand what Marker is saying I just think you get excited about something and want to share it but sometimes nothing happens, or you just drag it on forever.

    Do you think the tudors will extend until Elizabeth’s life? I think it would be very nice to continue the story until that moment, indeed it was the best time for England (Elizabeth’s kingdom)
