Subject:        Kate Beckinsale

For your amusement:

In yesterday's New York Times Magazine there was a profile of the young
actress Kate Beeckinsale, who made her film debut as Hero in Branagh's
1993 Much Ado.  "When I was cast," she is quoted as saying, "I didn't
know who Keanu Reeves was, and he was my love interest in the film."
As Reeves played Don John and not Claudio, this is either a reflection
of Beckinsale's memory, a covert commentary on Robert Sean Leonard's
Claudio, or else an indication of some pretty odd subtexts that they
must have been playing!  (I expect the first).
