Stephen Gardiner - Fictional Portrayals

Fictional Portrayals

Bishop Gardiner is a character in The Fifth Queen trilogy by Ford Madox Ford.

Gardiner is a prominent character in Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies, where he appears as an implacable opponent of Thomas Cromwell.

Gardiner is played by Terence Rigby in the 1998 film Elizabeth, where he is portrayed as a villainous bishop who took part in the Ridolfi plot and who vehemently opposed Elizabeth I's Act of Uniformity. This is fantastical, since Gardiner had died before Elizabeth ascended the throne. A less misleading portrayal of Gardiner can be seen in the BBC dramas The Six Wives of Henry VIII and Elizabeth R. In The Tudors television series Gardiner is played by Simon Ward.

Famous quotes containing the words portrayals and/or fictional:

    We attempt to remember our collective American childhood, the way it was, but what we often remember is a combination of real past, pieces reshaped by bitterness and love, and, of course, the video past—the portrayals of family life on such television programs as “Leave it to Beaver” and “Father Knows Best” and all the rest.
    Richard Louv (20th century)

    One of the proud joys of the man of letters—if that man of letters is an artist—is to feel within himself the power to immortalize at will anything he chooses to immortalize. Insignificant though he may be, he is conscious of possessing a creative divinity. God creates lives; the man of imagination creates fictional lives which may make a profound and as it were more living impression on the world’s memory.
    Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)
