JESSICA BROWN FINDLAY LEADS BBC HISTORICAL SERIES 'JAMAICA INN' WITH MATTHEW MCNULTY! EVA LONGORIA IN 'REFUGIO'! ALEXANDRA PARK IS THE PRINCESS IN 'THE ROYALS' SHOW WITH LIZ HURLEY AS QUEEN, WILLIAM MOSELEY AS PRINCE

  EVA LONGORIA TO STAR IN
'REFUGIO' AS A HORSE ACROBAT
 Gorgeous Eva Longoria has three new projects: 'Deadline' reports that she has joined REFUGIO, which will be a directorial debut of actor Demian Bichir following a young dreamer who’s born in the circus and embarks on a search to find his long lost true love. That character will be played at various points in his life by a series of actors including Demian Bichir himself. Longoria plays a horse acrobat who joins the circus in Mexico trying to heal a broken heart. Eva will also produce two TV shows: VEGA V VEGA for NBC (about a young, successful lawyer who suddenly finds herself forced to go into a practice with her mother, a pioneering female attorney with whom she has a love/hate relationship) and an untitled drama for CW following a woman imprisoned for a double murder she didn’t commit who earns her law degree while behind bars, then wins her freedom and joins the high-powered law firm that she believes is at the centre of the conspiracy that framed her.


  'THE ROYALS' SHOW GETS
ALEXANDRA PARK AS THE PRINCESS
And continuing ladies day at HOLLYWOOD SPY today, E!'s first scripted show THE ROYALS has found new female cast members - Haley Lu Richardson (RAVENSWOOD) and Alexandra Park (HOME AND AWAY)! THE ROYALS, a show about a fictional royal family, centres on Prince Liam (William Moseley) who is thrust in the spotlight after his older brother, the beloved Prince Robert, is killed in a military training accident. Liam is in love with a young American woman, Ophelia (Haley Lu Richardson), the daughter of the royal family’s head of security who is studying art history and dance and who helps him cope with the loss of his brother and his new position as the next King of England. But her secret romance with Liam will bring her into conflict with the Queen (Liz Hurley). Alexandra Park will play the queen’s daughter and Liam’s sister, Princess Eleanor, the sexy princess with a party hard lifestyle. Her love interest will be played by dashing Tom Austin.

  JESSICA BROWN FINDLAY IN
 BBC'S NEW  HISTORICAL SERIES JAMAICA INN
And here's yet another period set programme coming in the future to the small screens. 'Digital Spy' reports that DOWNTON ABBEY's Jessica Brown Findlay will lead the cast in BBC One's new mini series JAMAICA INN. This is an adaptation of Daphne du Maurier novel. Set in 1820s Cornwall, JAMAICA INN follows spirited Mary Yellan (Brown Findlay), a young woman sent to live with her aunt (Joanne Whalley) after the death of her mother. When Mary arrives at the eerie, isolated Jamaica Inn, she finds her once carefree aunt is now firmly under the spell of domineering husband Joss (Sean Harris). The inn, it turns out, is a front for a smuggling ring. As Mary attempts to navigate her new surroundings, she falls for bad boy Jem (Matthew McNulty) and begins questioning her own morals and loyalties until an ultimate test reveals her true self. Findlay has recently joined James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe in FRANKENSTEIN movie too!

  6. Jamaica Inn could be good. I like the idea of a smuggling ring-something different. I do worry now that with so many historical's they will become every day and lose their charm. It's always a bit dangerous to do too much in one genre.

    1. especially with the fact that most of the historical shows we've been excited about proved to be bad after airing :(
      Both WHITE QUEEN, GAME OF THRONES and ATLANTIS have dissapointed me this year, with only DA VINCI'S DEMONS satisfying my taste.

    2. I haven't seen any of those yet. I may have seen Da Vinci's Demons listed on Netflix, but I'll have to check. I'm still finishing up series that closed a year or more ago.

    3. I think both you and the hubs might enjoy DA VINCI, dear, it's lovely and sexy and a bit more inteliigent than other US shows, and plus you know how much Tom Riley and Elliott Cowan love me :)

  10. Love Eva Longoria - she's positively stunning. I wish they made more Desperate Housewives. That was a fun drama!

  11. Jamaica Inn looks interesting.

    It's been forever since I've seen Longoria in anything. I stopped watching Desperate Housewives when life became too busy for me.

    1. she probably has the most movies and projects of all of HOUSEWIVES but not in major blockbusters

  12. I loved Eva in Desperate Housewives, but sadly, even she couldn't hold my attention after the 3rd season. Is it me, or does that woman just get hotter with age? Sigh.. if we could all be so lucky!
