Elizabeth I

A period makeup site details a variety of Queen Elizabeth I cinema cosmetics.

Queen Elizabeth I, the Virgin Queen, is a recurrent favourite and has been played by: Sarah Churchill, Bette Davis (The Virgin Queen and The Private Lives Of Elizabeth and Essex), Glenda Jackson (Elizabeth R and Mary, Queen Of Scots), Flora Robson (three times), Claudette Colbert, and Jean Simmons among others. Recent movies have featured Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth) and Judi Dench (Shakespeare In Love) in the role, not forgetting the unforgettable portrayals by Miranda Richardson in Blackadder: a movie with Glenn Close was supposedly in production or pre-production but appears to have disappeared into development-hell. And yes I know that Quentin Crisp is not an actress Ė but itís my site so Iíve included him.

I'm partial to Cate Blanchett's performance in Elizabeth, but I think I may have a bit of a crush on her... and I love Miranda Richardson in Blackadder. She is hilariously bawdy!

So that's where they got Queen Amidalla's look for Episode One!
