Actors Ben Miles (as Thomas Cromwell) and Lydia Leonard (as Anne Boleyn) perform in an adaptation of Hilary Mantel's books "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies" during a photocall at the Aldwych Theatre in London May 15, 2014. Five centuries after he ruled the political roost in Tudor England, Henry VIII's chief minister Thomas Cromwell is playing to packed houses in London in two plays based on the best-selling novels of Hilary Mantel. It is further evidence of how her double Man Booker prize-winning books "Wolf Hall" and "Bring Up the Bodies", which have sold more than 3 million copies worldwide, resonate for modern audiences with their mix of political and sexual intrigue.
