FIRST RENEGADE NELL
PICS FROM DISNEY PLUS SERIES
We have announced this one years ago and now Disney Plus has finally sent us the first images from their new eight part historical adventure series RENEGADE NELL from Happy Valley creator and scribe Sally Wainwright which should start streaming sometime in spring next year. So stay tuned, my spylings, as I will give you the first trailer for this new series as soon as we get one from Disney, probably early next year.
IN THIS NEW EPIC ADVENTURE
Louisa Harland plays the title role of Nell, a quick-witted and courageous young woman who finds herself framed for murder and unexpectedly becomes the most notorious highwaywoman in 18th Century England. But when a magical spirit called Billy Blind (Nick Mohammed) appears, Nell realises her destiny is bigger than she ever imagined. Frank Dillane plays Nell’s fickle friend and sometime adversary Charles Devereux, a charming rogue with a dangerous, villainous alter ego. Adrian Lester plays the Earl of Poynton, a master political schemer and manipulator who joins forces against Nell with Sofia Wilmot (Alice Kremelberg), a young widow who wants power and independence at any cost. Joely Richardson plays eccentric newspaper magnate Lady Eularia Moggerhanger, whilst Pip Torrens appears as Lord Blancheford – the father of Sofia and her feckless, bullying brother Thomas (Jake Dunn). Meanwhile, Ényì Okoronkwo also stars as Rasselas, a spirited stable boy who joins Nell and her sisters on the run in his own bid for freedom, with newcomers Bo Bragason and Florence Keen as Nell’s two younger sisters Roxy and George, and Craig Parkinson as Nell’s kind-hearted father Sam.
