'WHITE PRINCESS' EPIC TV SERIES LAVISH CAST PHOTOS WITH JODIE COMER, JACOB COLLINS LEVY, MICHELLE FAIRLEY! 'REIGN' EPIC TV SERIES FINAL SEASON TRAILER IS HERE!

'WHITE PRINCESS' EPIC SERIES
 LAVISH CAST PHOTOS ARE HERE!
Tons of costume drama delight today, my spylings, as we have first photos and teasers for upcoming new period set TV shows! A few weeks ago I showed you the first teaser for THE WHITE PRINCESS series, a sequel to The White Queen but this time produced only by Starz without a help from BBC, and today you can feast your eyes on the lavish new cast photo shoot photos from the eight episode saga which will start its rule this April! As the photos show it will obviously have much better costumes than the first season which was largely criticised for historical inaccuracies and lack of any splendour.

YORKS VS TUDORS  
The story begins in the aftermath of the 1485 battle of Bosworth, the final conflict in England's War of the Roses, where Henry Tudor (Jacob Collins Levy) unexpectedly defeated King Richard III to become King Henry VII. Elizabeth of York (Jodie Comer), the niece and former lover of Richard, is forced to marry Henry to unite their warring families, but the two can barely contain their disdain for one another. Newly crowned Queen of England, Elizabeth finds herself torn between loyalty to her blood relatives, placating her husband and his icy mother (Michelle Fairley) and establishing herself as a key player within the court's intricate politics.

PREDOMINANTLY FEMALE CAST
Other stars in the cast include Essie Davis as Elizabeth's mother, previous queen Elizabeth, Joanne Whalley will be Duchesss of Burgundy her aunt, and sister to dead kings Richard III and Edward IV of England, with Michelle Fairley as Margaret Beaufort, the king's mother and the calculating mastermind behind Henry's ascent to the Throne, and Suki Waterhouse as Cecily of York, jealous younger sister to Princess Elizabeth! Amy Manson is going to portray Lady Catherine Gordon, cousin to King James IV of Scotland and the love interest of “The Boy” who claims to be Prince Richard of York, rightful heir to the throne and Elizabeth’s long lost brother played by Patrick Gibson! Andrew Whipp will play Richard Pole, supporter and former soldier of Henry VII, whose marriage to Elizabeth’s cousin Margaret Plantagenet (Rebecca Benson) reinforces the alliance between the Houses of York and Lancaster under Tudor rule. Kenneth Cranham is Bishop Morton and Vincent Regan is Jasper Tudor.



'REIGN' EPIC SERIES
FINAL SEASON TRAILER!

Meanwhile, over at CW all is set for the fourth and final season of their popular historical saga REIGN which will bring Mary Queen of Scots' reign to end starting February 10th! You can check out the first trailer below announcing the ending run which will have 16 episodes following Mary's settling in Scotland, fight with Queen Elizabeth and her new marriages. Adelaide Kane returns as Mary, Queen of Scots, Megan Follows as French queen Catherine de' Medici, Rachel Skarsten as Elizabeth I of England, Charlie Carrick as her lover Robert Dudley, Ben Geurens as Mary's ex lover Gideon Blackburn, Spencer MacPherson as Charles IX of France with Will Kemp arriving as one of Mary's new husbands Henry Stuart, Lord Darnley and Adam Croasdell as Bothwell!

    1. yes, unlike the first season which really could not boast either with costumes, story nor acting, this one might actually be better. The costumes are flawless

    1. Starz really likes their epic series! It will also be a rather feminist series, so you might enjoy it, Debra!

  3. It doesn't feel like Reign has been on tv for that long. One of my Facebook friends is always talking about that show. I'll have to start watching it soon since it's coming to a close.

    1. It really has :) It has gone quite a long way, from a teensy affair with modern music, to pathetic plots and now to a rather rich political show on the hardships of ruling. I just hope we get to see Mary decapitated in the end :)) I haven't watched it for four years to be deprived of such a glorious ending :) If you do start watching, keep in mind that they do progress over the seasons

    2. Thanks for letting me know. I tend to give up on shows rather quickly these days if it fails to drag me in on the first few episode or two. I'll let this one run longer before deciding to give it the ax or not ;)

  4. Well CW is going all superheroes, comics and sci-fi so of course Reign and Vampire Diaries are coming to an end. Can't wait for The White Princess in April.
