Lucky me, I was on the set of The Tudors yesterday. It is, of course, being produced in Ardmore Studios, right here in my home town of Bray. Had lunch in the canteen with Kathleen, who is the script supervisor and then we toured some of the sets - the Tower of London prison where poor Sir Thomas More was kept, the King's throne, Prince Edward's little golden cradle (Season 3 is being filmed now), also the main hall where the balls are held. I was in heaven. I love the magic of film sets and I particularly love this series. Outdoor sets include Kilruddery House (around the corner from me) and Powerscourt, a short drive away.
