FIRST TRAILER FOR STARZ & BBC NEW EPIC SHOW "THE WHITE QUEEN" WITH REBECCA FERGUSON, DAVID OAKES, MAX IRONS! SOPHIE LOWE, MICHAEL SOCHA, PETER GADIOT CAST IN "ONCE UPON A TIME" SPINOFF "WONDERLAND"


  FANTASY SHOW WONDER- LAND GETS FIRST STARS 
Well, it seems they are already casting actors for ONCE UPON A TIME spin-off show WONDERLAND! Based loosely on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, the spin-off to ABC's popular fantasy show, will be set in a pre-curse Wonderland and will fill the gaps between ONCE UPON A TIME seasons with 13 episodes. Young Sophie Lowe has been cast for the role of Alice joining one of BEING HUMAN's werewolves Michael Socha (he will star as The Knave of Hearts, a sardonic adventurer, a man of action, a loner and a heart-breaker) and Peter Gadiot who will play Cyrus, Alice's love interest. The show will also have another character - Amahi, described as exotic, soulful and optimistic! The producers are also hoping to get Sebastian Stan back as Mad Hatter and Barbara Hershey as the Queen of Hearts! You have most recently seen young Sophie Lowe in the exciting trailer for thriller movie THE PHILOSOPHERS  with James D'arcy!

  THE WHITE QUEEN TRAILER 
It's here, it's here, my little royal freaks! The first trailer for this summer's television event - historical series THE WHITE QUEEN which will air at Starz this July and on BBC (probably a bit earlier). Now
 let us keep our fingers crossed that they don't turn this series into a royal teen soap with spoilt teen brats (having always weak Max Irons in the lead role brings up these fears in me). The television adaptation of Phillippa Gregory's bestselling novel, the show brings a riveting story of love, lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, given through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women, who tried to secure the English throne for themselves by using their powers of seduction and manipulation.
  WHITE QUEEN STORY
 The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family; The House of York and The House
   of Lancaster. The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV (Max Irons) is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker” (James Frain). But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville (Rebecca Ferguson), Warwick’s plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle ensues between Elizabeth, her most fierce adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort (Amanda Hale), and Anne Neville (Faye Marsay), the pawn in her father’s power game – each woman vying for the crown. The cast also includes Aneurin Barnard as King's brother Duke Richard, David Oakes as Duke of Clarence and Eleanor Tomlinson as Isabel Neville.

  3. The trailer was too short for me to get a sense of what to expect with White Queen. The soundtrack is very modern and doesn't fit with the period. That could mean they are trying to appeal to a young audience. I hope not :)

    1. yep, it was more of a love teaser, hope they release a long trailer soon. They do tend to use modern music in new epic shows. GAME OFTHRONES also used a lot of very dynamic modern songs in their recent trailers.

  4. I agree with Anne regarding the White Queen. The music didn't fit - but I was nonetheless intrigued :)

    I also enjoyed learning a new word!

  11. I didn't know that they were going to do a spin-off - I do hope it's as awesome as Once upon a time. I love the way the show ties up certain storylines and how they go about explaining why things are they way they are.

    1. yep, it was a sudden decision, nobody knows why, since the original show lost its mojo long time ago....

  12. Who is this Michael Socha? He is so dorky looking, especially in that picture and look at that belly... A werewolf needs a six pack. Hello Joe Manganiello! Even George had muscles, this guy looks like a stick figure.

    Wonderland has possibilities, even if they've cast that dork.

    1. You need new glasses, lady :P He's absolutely adorkable and I love his belly, it's overly cute. And I pray other people will find my and your bellies, which are ten times bigger than Socha's, cute too, otherwise we're doomed if people like only chiselled abs.

    2. LMAO! Touche, my dear. I still think he looks like a dork, though. ;)

    3. I pray God gives me a dork to cuddle with :)
