Starz is rounding out the court for its “Becoming Elizabeth” series, about the early years of Queen Elizabeth I, starring Alicia von Rittberg in the title role, revealing Tuesday that 14 actors have joined the drama.
Among the new additions are Romola Garai as Princess Mary, Jessica Raine as Queen Catherine Parr and Tom Cullen as Thomas Seymour.
Per Starz, “Becoming Elizabeth” 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
