Tom Burke (The Musketeers) will star as Dolokhov and Aisling Loftus (Mr Selfridge) has been cast as Sonya. Now they're also joined by Gillian Anderson as Anna Pavlovna, Jim Broadbent as Prince Bolkonsky, Kenneth Cranham as Uncle Mikhail, Aneurin Barnard as Boris, Tuppence Middleton as Helene, Callum Turner as Anatole and Jessie Buckley as Prince Marya.

  'A ROYAL NIGHT OUT' TRAILER
SARAH GADON AS BRITAIN'S YOUNG QUEEN ELIZABETH
The first trailer has been released for British drama A ROYAL NIGHT OUT which is out in May in UK. This drama, which follows Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret as they party with the public during the historic VE Day celebrations in 1945, has a star studded cast with Rupert Everett and Emily Watson playing King George and Queen Elizabeth, and Sarah Gadon and Bel Powley starring as the princesses. Jack Reynor stars as Jack, a man who the princesses meet during their time outside the gates of Buckingham Palace. A ROYAL NIGHT OUT is based on true events, which saw the young princesses granted permission to mingle with the British people following the end of the Second World War.

  1. Gillian Anderson is almost unrecognizable. How did she go from drab to ultra fab?

    1. sadly, both British films and series, have very poor marketing and we often hear about them weeks or just months before the premiere :( Even with the famous names in the cast, we've only heard about this one this week too.
