'THE SPANISH PRINCESS'
HIRES A FEW NEW COURTIERS
sure you will all agree that this year's White Princess continuation THE SPANISH PRINCESS
was an embarrassing disaster, filled with terrible writing, poor casting and the worst acting we've ever seen on the small

screens, but for some reason Starz
did not cancel it but is currently shooting eight more final episodes that will close the whole affair and finish it for good. And now they've added some new names for the final season and among them are some of our favourite Brits: Andrew Buchan
(as upwardly mobile Sir Thomas More), Ray Stevenson
(as Henry's boorish brother in law, King James IV of Scotland) alongside Sai Bennett
(as Henry's sister Princess Mary now of age to forge a political alliance for the Tudors through her own marriage) and Peter Egan
(as Tudor stalwart General Howard). Sadly, Charlotte Hope and Stephanie Levi John, who have shocked us with their atrocious efforts in acting and utter lack of charisma in the first part, return to their roles of Catherine of Aragon and her lady in waiting, with bland Ruairi O’Connor
as king Henry VIII.
The Second Part
, very loosely, and historically ridiculously inaccurate, on the
books by Philippa Gregory
, the series continues the story of Queen
Catherine and Henry VIII. Presiding over the most glamorous court in
Europe and beloved by their people, together

Despite proving herself a politician, a diplomat, a national inspiration
and even a military commander, Catherine must battle to save her love
with the King, and to preserve the peace and prosperity of their reign.
I saw her in my fireman model calendar.ReplyDelete
I need to buy a new fireman calendar for next year! Hopefully with Australian firemen!Delete
I have never heard of Sai Bennett before either, but she does look quite lovely. Hopefully she can act.ReplyDelete
If she was cast for Spanish Princess than she probably cannot :) The casting director for that one seems to pick out only the most atrociously talentless ones.Delete
That’s a shame when roles are passed out on looks rather than merit based :(Delete
I don't even know if it was the looks as both Catherine and her black maid were played by rather unattractive actresses. They literally have nothing, no looks, no talent, no charisma, it was the worst epic series I've ever watched.Delete
You're not making me want to watch either of these with your descriptions today! Maybe I should stick to Forensic Files tonight. :)ReplyDelete
That would be a better choice :)Delete
