Trivia[]

  • Anne was the elder first cousin of Katherine Howard.
    • Anne's mother, Elizabeth Howard, was the sister of Katherine's father, Edmund Howard.
    • The two cousins shared the same fate; both were executed by beheading, though Katherine was solely charged with treason due to adultery while Anne was beheaded for charges of incest, witchcraft, adultery, and conspiring against the king.
    • Even though the two were cousins, they never actually met in person; this is likely due to the facts that Anne was around 15 years older than Katherine and Katherine's family was significantly poorer than Anne's.
    • Both cousins were also second cousins of Jane Seymour.
  • Anne was the maid of honour of Catherine of Aragon.
  • It has been rumoured that the traditional English folk song Greensleeves was written by Henry VIII about Anne.
    • Several references to this rumour are made in the musical; in Anne's verse in Ex-Wives, she sings, "My sleeves may be green, but my lipstick's red". The song also plays a version of the tune during instrumental parts.
  • A myth that Anne had a sixth finger on her right hand was spread after her death. This was likely an attempt to demonize her, as at that time deformities were seen as caused by evil inside.
    • The show also references this myth, as Anne answers, "My sixth finger" when Catherine Parr asks why anyone knows who the queens are, before Catherine of Aragon exclaims, "Put it away, babe!".
  • Anne is believed by some to have been a composer; the poem O Death Rock Me Asleep is often attributed to her and believed to have been written by her during her imprisonment in the Tower of London shortly before her death.
  • In the musical, Anne's 'queenspirations' were Avril Lavigne and Lily Allen.
  • For swings and alternates that have two first covers, the role of Anne Boleyn is most often paired with that of Anna of Cleves or Katherine Howard.
    • For swings and alternates that have three first covers, the role is most often paired with that of Jane Seymour and Katherine Howard.
  • Over all, out of the four alternate costumes, the teal costume is most associated with the role of Boleyn; three out of the five actresses cast as the teal alternate have had Boleyn as one of their intended first covers.
  • In an Instagram story, Toby Marlow stated that if Six were to be made into a movie, he would like either Billie Eilish or Jessie J to play Anne.[1]
  • The 'B' choker that Anne wears in the show is a reference to the necklace worn in her portrait. It is also likely referencing how she was beheaded, similarly to Katherine Howard's 'K' choker. She wore the necklace to signal wealth and power of the Boleyn family, hence it being made of gold and on a chain of pearls.
  • The space buns worn by most actresses who play Anne came to exist because Millie O'Connell originally wore the hairstyle for West End Live 2018. She decided to wear the hairstyle during an actual show; the show's directors Lucy Moss and Jamie Armitage liked the hairstyle so much that it has stuck ever since. Christina Modestou originally wanted to wear them for her Boleyn since Izuka Hoyle had them and she thought they were ‘rocking’. When Christina returned for the Vinyl release and found out the actress of Anne Boleyn she jokingly asked Izuka to pray somebody got sick so she could cover.
