This morning my soon to be brother in law posted a picture online of a photo from the Telegraph captioned ‘Mark Rylance as Oliver Cromwell in Wolf Hall’.
Now, I haven’t read Wolf Hall yet but I am aware that it is about Tudor England. As such, Oliver Cromwell (born in 1599, died in 1658 – September) probably isn’t too heavily involved. Rylance is in fact playing Thomas Cromwell (born around 1485, died in 1540), who is not the same person at all. However, this mistake did give me this idea for a quick comic – so all’s well that ends well.
