SERPENT QUEEN EPIC SERIES
FINDS ITS SINISTER CARDINAL
One of our pet projects is continuing with the casting process and as Deadline reports, THE SERPENT QUEEN epic series over at Starz has just
added Ray Panthaki next to Samantha Morton, Charles Dance, Colm Meaney and others that we've already announced. Morton plays famous Catherine de Medici who, considered an immigrant, common and plain, is married into the 16th century French court as an orphaned teenager expected to bring a fortune in dowry and produce many heirs, only to discover that her husband is in love with an older woman, her dowry is unpaid and she’s unable to conceive. Yet, only with her intelligence and determination, she manages to keep her marriage alive and masters the bloodsport that is the monarchy better than anyone else, ruling France for 50 years. Panthaki will be Charles Guise, the sinister Catholic Cardinal who loves taking things from the Protestants under the guise of raising funds for war and to fund their families louche lifestyles. He is intelligent, politically deft, athletically gifted and devastatingly handsome.
