We waited for the cast to be announced for almost two years now, but now BBC One has revealed the stars for its TV series adaptation of famous BLACK NARCISSUS classic and we quite love it. Alessandro Nivola and Gemma Arterton will headline the three part TV series which will also air on FX based on Rumer Godden's classic novel. The cast also has Aisling Franciosi as Sister Ruth, Diana Rigg as Mother Dorothea, Jim Broadbent as Father Roberts, Gina McKee as Sister Adela, Rosie Cavaliero as Sister Briony,  Patsy Ferran as Sister Blanche, Karen Bryson as Sister Philippa, and Dipika Kunwar as Kanchi.

BLACK NARCISSUS FOLLOWS
Sister Clodagh (Gemma Arterton), the leader of the nuns of St Faiths, who travel to Nepal to set up a branch of their order in the remote palace of Mopu. In the unfettered sensuality of the so-called House of Women, Sister Clodagh finds herself increasingly attracted to a handsome and damaged land agent, Mr Dean (Alessandro Nivola). He is a dissolute English colonial and First World War veteran whose combative relationship with the head sister of the order awakens
Alessandro Nivola takes the lead in the series that starts shooting in Nepal and UK next month
hidden longings in both. But as the repressed memories of Clodagh’s past become entangled with the tragic history of Princess Srimati, history seems doomed to repeat itself. Are there really ghosts here in the Himalayas, or are the nuns just succumbing to long repressed primal desires? And which of them is prepared to die – or kill – for love?

  1. Steamy? I'm always up for a steamy story and a nun attracted to an agent definitely qualifies. :) Her dress is absolutely fabulous!!! I need that. I don't know for what, but I need that dress.

    1. I opted between Gemma in this dress and another tight blue one, but I chose this one as I used the other one in many previous posts with her :)

  2. Diana Rigg - a name from the past. She was both beautiful and talented; she probably still is, in an aged sort of way.

    Nuns and repressed sex - great, appealing topic! The Nepal location, both remote and exotic - serves well the plot.
    A mini-series worth watching!

    1. We hadn't seen her for a very long time and then she got a role in Game of Thrones a few years ago and Victoria and now she is back again.

  3. I could never be a nun. I'd be the first murderous nun killing for a little action ;)

    I need Gemma's legs and shoes. That would make my life complete.

    1. Yes, nuns are just too creepy even when they are not psycho, any kind of fanaticism is creepy to me.
      I must investigate who is Gemma's boyfriend, I know that Alessandro is married to Emily Mortimer :)
