So King Henry is passing time with a gorgeous new lady-in-waiting (one who likes fancy jewelry and knows how to set it off) and you may be wondering about the actress who plays her.
British actress Charlotte Salt, 23, has several American and UK series to her credit and a budding film career. At age 13 she was cast in the series Born and Bred, which had a successful three-year run across the pond. Stateside she’s had guest and recurring roles in Entourage, CSI and Wildfire. Salt also provided the voice of Estrith in the movie Beowulf, starring Angelina Jolie. She has two other films, Deep in the Valley and Ivory, listed on her resume.
Her role on The Tudors will take her through five episodes this season, according to Salt’s web site.
