JULIANNE MOORE IN MARY & GEORGE COSTUME DRAMA
announcing Julianne Moore
as the lead star of their new costume series MARY AND GEORGE
have cast Nicholas Galitzine
as her son George. In the eight part series she will play Mary Villiers, Countess of Buckingham, who in 17th century England molded her beautiful son,

SECOND SEASON TRAILER!
|The second season returns this February|
, it comes sooner than I expected, but Australian Foxtel
has released today a trailer for the second season of HOTEL PORTOFINO
period set drama which hits the streamer February 12th and will air on ITV
and later this year on PBS
in USA. Set on the Italian Riviera in the 1920s, HOTEL PORTOFINO
tells the story of the Ainsworth family that has relocated to Italy to set up a quintessentially British hotel in the beautiful town of Portofino. Amidst the rise of Fascism in Mussolini’s Italy, season two will see Ainsworth family relations reach breaking point and the future of the hotel threatened.
Embracing themes of
sexual and social liberation, season two will see Natascha McElhone
reprise her role as owner of Hotel Portofino and family matriarch, Bella Ainsworth. Mark Umbers
plays her charming but dangerous aristocratic husband, Cecil, Oliver Dench
is their handsome son Lucian, Daniele Pecci
as the dashing count Albani, and Lily Fraser
will return as the hotel’s most famous guest singer-turned-movie star, Claudine Pascal. Roby Schinasi
has joined the cast as the handsome Victor Michel.
Do we get to see the beautiful Portofino town or just inside the hotel?ReplyDelete
We do see the beautiful seaside and town, but it was shot in Croatia, so it is Croatian beauty, not Italian. I think the first season is available on Sky Germany for you.Delete
I haven't yet seen Prince Golytzin acting. This sounds like a good role to get to see his charms.ReplyDelete
If he has any LOL He would certainly not be my choice for this role, but he did look handsome in the period set costume in that flop Cindarella with the godawful Camilla Kabeljo. Let us hope they won't cast someone we cannot stand as the king! How old was the king here?Delete
King James was in his late 4os and George was 25 when they met in 1614.Delete
Well, that opens space for a very hot combo indeed! Hope they cast someone hot as the king.Delete
Did the Middleton’s take a page out of Mary and George’s book? Kate Middleton’s mom always seems pleased as punch about her new status ever since her daughter married a future king.ReplyDelete
You wouldn't be? LOLDelete
I'm not an attention whore, so probably not. I prefer to blend into the background when possible. I wouldn't want the media attention.Delete
But when you see all the perks you probably wouldn't mind it. Their business went up after the marriage, hers especially.Delete
