|The show will air in eight episodes|
BECOMING ELIZABETH SAGA
is the fascinating, untold story of the early life of England’s most iconic Queen. Long before she ascended the throne, young Elizabeth Tudor was an orphaned teenager who became embroiled in the political and sexual politics of the English court. The death of King Henry VIII sets into motion a dangerous scramble for power. His surviving children find themselves pawns in a game between the great families of England and the powers of Europe who vie for control of the country. The world of BECOMING ELIZABETH is visceral, dangerous, and very bloody; a time in which every man or woman of the court is on the wheel of fortune, which may take them to a position of great power one moment, or the executioner’s block the next. Judgements are rendered quickly, and no one is safe.
WHO IS AT THE COURT?
Alicia von Rittberg plays Elizabeth I, a teenager who thinks she is an adult and old enough to play the games that she is thrown into after the death of her father. Tom Cullen plays Thomas Seymour, simultaneously charming, playful and funny whilst being hotheaded, ambitious and possibly dangerous – he expects the spoils that ought naturally to fall to the King’s uncle! Romola Garai stars as Mary, Oliver Zetterström as Edward, Jessica Raine as Catherine Parr, John Heffernan as Duke of Somerset, Jamie Parker as John Dudley, Jamie Blackley as Robert Dudley, Jacob Avery as Guildford Dudley, Alexandra Gilbreath as Kat Ashley, Leo Bill as Henry Grey, Bella Ramsey as Jane Grey, Ekow Quartey as Pedro, Alex Macqueen as Stephen Gardiner, and Olivier Huband as Ambassador Guzman. Anya Reiss is the creator and executive producer of the show. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think.
