  'THE GILDED AGE' EPIC
 DRAMA REVEALS FIRST CAST!
Cynthia Nixon will be Ada Brook
After many years of delay, the production is finally ready to start and the cast has been announced for Julian Fellowes' period set series THE GILDED AGE which will follow the lives of the millionaire titans of New York City in the 1880s!  Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Amanda Peet and Morgan Spector are the first cast members! 

The Story Begins in 1882 – introducing young Marian Brook, the orphaned daughter of a Southern general, who moves into the home of her rigidly conventional aunts in New York City. Accompanied by the mysterious Peggy Scott, an African American woman masquerading as her maid, Marian gets caught up in the dazzling lives of her stupendously rich

neighbours, led by a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife struggling for acceptance by the Astor and Vanderbilt set. Will Marian follow the established rules of society, or forge her own path in this exciting new world that is on the brink of transformation into the modern age?

Christine Baranski will be Agnes van Rhijn, a proud and stubborn aristocrat who will never accept that the world has changed, and that ancient values are being replaced by new ones. She found herself penniless as her parents’ plantation was foundering, even before the war, but she managed to catch a husband just in time. Agnes has a son named Oscar, whom she worships, but her worship is not returned. Cynthia Nixon is Ada Brook, another victim of the collapse of
Amanda Peet will be Bertha Russell!
the old south, but unlike her sister Agnes, she never found a way to get out until it was too late, and she was forced back on her sister’s charity. She is not naturally confrontational, but she is capable of standing up for what she believes. Amanda Peet will play middle class Bertha Russell who backed her instincts when she set out to catch her husband George, the son of a merchant family who has proved to be a financial genius. She is determined to use her money and position to break into a society that resists change at every turn. Morgan Spector will portray George Russell, a classic robber baron of his own time, but pleasant enough in company. He’s fond of his wife and his children, but utterly ruthless in business. He has already acquired millions, and billions will follow. In every challenge, George must win.

  2. This one could be good, but I just can't take Cynthia Nixon seriously anymore after her nutty meltdown and dabble in politics. The sight of her just irks me to my core.

    1. Me too! She totally presented herself as a silly loon after her run for the office.

  3. This one seems particularly interesting to me. I grew up with many of these names, particularly Vanderbilt. We’ve been to their mansions, planetarium, old farmlands, and I drive the Vanderbilt expressway everyday to work. :)
