'SANDITON' PERIOD SET SAGA
THEO JAMES AND ROSE WILLIAMS TO TOPLINE THE CAST
|Theo James will take the male lead in the series|
SANDITON tells the story of the impulsive, spirited and unconventional Charlotte Heywood (Rose Williams) and her spiky relationship with the charming Sidney Parker (Theo James). When a chance accident transports her from her rural hometown of Willingden to a would-be coastal resort, it exposes Charlotte to the intrigues and dalliances of a seaside town on the make. The drama takes viewers from
the West Indies to the rotting alleys of London and exposes the hidden
agendas of each character and sees Charlotte discover herself and
ultimately find love.
|Rose Williams will take the female lead|
Anne Reid will play Lady Denham. Two husbands dead and gone, Lady Denham received money from the first and a title from the second and expects to be treated with a great deal of deference. Notoriously tight-fisted, she seems to delight in the power that she wields over the town, particularly those waiting to cash in from her death. Playing the head of the Parker family, Kris Marshall stars in the eight part series as Tom Parker, an enthusiastic and happily married man with a vision of putting Sanditon on the map.
