In the accompanying article (never mind that other headline about “The Real L Word”; you’ll hear all about that in this week’s Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever.), Cate talks about her initial reluctance to revisit her royal role.

“When [director Shekhar Kapur] mentioned it to me before, I always said no. Why would I want to do that? What else is there to say?” she says. This script, however, which finds the Queen at mid-reign, single and childless, struck a chord. “I started thinking about what supposed ‘middle age’ means and the really modern concern that women have about infertility and the loss of one’s attractiveness.”

As The Golden Age prepares to hit theaters, there is already talk of a third film. Kapur has said that he always envisioned the Elizabeth story as a trilogy. Cate hasn’t committed to a threequel, but conceded that there is certainly enough source material for another film.

“There are endless possibilities with Elizabeth ... And I think there will be a lot more Elizabeth [films] because she’s endlessly fascinating.”
