Comment: Re: SHK 12.0921 Kate Beckinsale
>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).
