The costume Oscar winner Mark Rylance wore in acclaimed BBC historical drama Wolf Hall is to be auctioned off to raise funds for an anti-war film.
A fur-lined coat, shirt, hat, and codpiece, which the knighted actor wore as Thomas Cromwell in the mini-series are set for auction on eBay, and proceeds from the sale will help fund a movie adaptation of Jaroslav Hazek’s novel The Good Soldier Schwejk.
The costume is being sold by filmmakers at Sands Films with the blessing of pacifist Rylance, who is a patron of the Stop The War coalition. Sands Films executives were behind Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies and they are also producing The Good Soldier Schwejk.
The outfit Rylance wore as historical schemer Cromwell will be auctioned on eBay for 10 days from Friday (28Apr17).
