PREVIEW CLIPS FOR QUEEN 'VICTORIA' EPIC SERIES WITH JENNA COLEMAN, RUFUS SEWELL AND JUDE LAW'S 'THE YOUNG POPE' TV SERIES! VINCENT REGAN, JOANNE WHALLEY JOIN 'WHITE PRINCESS' EPIC SERIES

'WHITE PRINCESS' EPIC SERIES
CASTS VINCENT REGAN, JOANNE WHALLEY AND OTHERS
A bunch of new actors have joined the cast of Starz' period set sequel series WHITE PRINCESS lead by Jodie Comer as Princess Elizabeth, who is now joined by Jacob Collins Levy as Henry VII, the paranoid king forced to marry an enemy to secure his throne! Essie Davis is her mother Dowager Queen Elizabeth “The White Queen” indomitable strategist and unwavering supporter of the York cause. Joanne Whalley will be widowed Duchess of Burgundy, her aunt, and sister to dead kings Richard III and Edward IV of England – a sensual, intelligent York woman who presides over her cultured court across the English Channel. As we wrote before, Michelle Fairley is Margaret Beaufort, Henry VII’s mother, the calculating mastermind behind his ascent to the Throne of England who works to fortify his rule, as York rivals continue to plot against them. Suki Waterhouse is Cecily of York, jealous younger sister to Princess Elizabeth, while their cousin Margaret Plantagenet – reluctant member of the York clan because of the precarious political position it puts her and her brother in at the Tudor court – is played by Rebecca Benson! Rhys Connah is Teddy, Caroline Goodall is Duchess Cecily, Kenneth Cranham is Bishop Morton and Vincent Regan is Jasper Tudor.

'THE YOUNG POPE' TRAILER
 JUDE LAW IS SMOKING PONTIFF
Two preview clips for upcoming period set series, starting with Jude Law's THE YOUNG POPE in which he plays the pontiff himself,  mysterious and contradictory, the first American pope in the devil's nest we call Vatican. Also starring Diane Keaton, the series will air this October on Sky, HBO and Canal +!

  4. The Young Pope looks hip and ready for reruns on E! channel after HBO is done with it circa 2018. Victoria looks really nice. Might give that a try.

  7. If I didn't know about Jude Laws real person life filled with scandal and infidelity...I would think he does LOOK like he could be a pope. Lol

    1. I'd think that is exactly what qualifies him perfectly to play the pontiff :) Especially an American one!
