Ruta will be new Serafina Pekkala!
The shooting is well under way, but BBC still keeps casting roles for their eight episode TV adaptation of Philip Pullman's HIS DARK MATERIALS epic saga. The latest one to join the cast is Ruta Gedmintas from The Tudors, who will play Serafina Pekkala, the queen of the Lake Enara witches.
The story, that follows two children who embark on a magical adventure through parallel universes, will see Dafne Keen in the lead role of little Lyra, James McAvoy as Lyra's father Lord Asriel, James Cosmo as elderly Gyptian Farder Coram. Ruth Wilson will be the magnetic and dangerous Mrs Coulter. Clarke Peters, Georgina Campbell and Anne Marie Duff (McAvoy's ex wife) also join the cast as the Master of Jordan College, journalist Adele Starminster and Ma Costa! Will Keen (Dafne’s father) will play Father MacPhail, a mysterious man whom Lyra meets at a London society party. Joining him there is Ariyon Bakare as Lord Boreal.

    3. I'm enjoying the refreshment as we did have about three or four weeks of tropical heat. They do say we shall have Indian Summer in Autumn here.

  3. Nowadays reality is more complex and astonishing than a fantasy plot; no need for two parallel universes.
    Still, this genre has its fans. The actress in the picture is beautiful.

    1. it's true, we do live in the times of technological wonders. Remember that just twenty years ago most of us did not have internet nor mobile phones? I just hope we will discover aliens before our time is up, Duta
