So when I heard that BBC America was doing a show to be shown in the week leading up to the royal wedding, well I had to audition.
My good friend, the lovely and talented author Hope Tarr, graciously agreed to let me use her home for the video, and her boyfriend Raj agreed to be the videographer. I showed up with a pale pink ballgown, a tiara, some royalty memoribilia and the fixings for a Crack Baby (William & Kate's favorite cocktail from the nightclub Boujis). Two Crack Baby cocktails later, the video was finished. Unfortunately I wasn't picked, I suspect I wasn't quite crazy enough, but I certainly had fun making the video.
So here it is. I hope you enjoy! I will be up early on April 29th to watch William & Kate tie the knot, probably twittering during the commercial breaks.

Henry hails from the island of Jersey, one of the Channel Islands, that sit midway between France and England. His father is a stockbroker and he attended Stowe boarding school. Recently Henry was cast as Superman, following in the footsteps of Christopher Reeve (totally hot) and Brandon Routh (not so much). The film, to be directed by Zach Snyder who gave the world 300, should put Henry over the top if it's successful. But this isn't Henry's first time at the Hollywood table. He was up for James Bond before Daniel Craig snatched the role. Stephanie Meyers also wanted him desperately to play Edward Cullen before the producers didn't think he could cut it anymore as a teenager.
