ERIN DOHERTY CAST IN
JUDE LAW'S FIREBRAND
Just last week I told you that Alicia Vikander has replaced Michelle Williams in FIREBRAND historical movie in which Jude Law plays Henry VIII and
Vikander will play his last wife Catherine Parr, and now from Daily Mail comes news that Chloe's Erin Doherty has been cast too as Protestant martyr Anne Askew, who was tortured at the Tower of London then burnt at the stake. Among other storylines, the film will also cover Henry's adviser Stephen Gardiner, the Bishop of Winchester (Simon Russell Beale), and his ruthless investigation to uncover high profile heretics, as part of a campaign to destroy Parr. Gardiner ordered Askew to be taken to the Tower, hoping she would betray the queen. But Askew refused to give up names, despite enduring torture so barbaric even the Tower's constable begged Henry to stop.
