I watched Anna and the King last week and thought, “wait a second… I’d know that smirk anywhere!”
Tom Felton IS Louis Leonowens. but I think we all remember him as our favorite Slytherin.
Knowing it was baby Draco in Anna and the King made the movie *that* much better.
I also never appreciated how cool it is that the movie is based on real events and real story line. I got interested and look up more of its history.
- The real king’s face was half paralyzed.
- Anna taught the King’s 64 (!!!) children
- After Anna wrote her novel about her experiences the king wrote she “has supplied by her invention that which is deficient in her memory.”
I think this story will continue to be popular regardless of the accuracy, or lack of. Maybe because we are all suckers for a good story with a little love involved :)
annnnnd because i couldn’t resist…
