Fresh off of unveiling the supporting cast for Victoria, ITV and series producers Mammoth Screen have released a first look image of former Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman in character as Queen Victoria.
Victoria is being hailed as an “ambitious landmark drama” which will follow the early life of Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman), from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of 18, through to her courtship and marriage to Price Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years, and was the UK’s longest serving monarch until she was overtaken by Elizabeth II earlier this year.
In addition to Jenna Coleman, the large cast also includes Peter Firth (Spooks: The Greater Good), Eve Myles (You, Me & Them), Rufus Sewell (The Man In The High Castle), Paul Rhys (The Assets), Catherine Flemming (Simones Labyrinth), Adrian Schiller (Endeavour), Nichola McAuliffe (Agatha Raisin And The Quiche Of Death), Daniela Holtz (Phoenix), Nell Hudson (Outlander), Tommy-Lawrence Knight (The Sarah Jane Adventures), Nigel Lindsay (The Tunnel) and Alice Orr-Ewing (Pramface).
Set to air in 2016, Victoria hails from Mammoth Screen and was created by Television producer and novelist Daisy Goodwin, who will also serve as an executive producer alongside Dan McCulloch and Damien Timmer. Victoria was developed by Mammoth Screen’s Creative Director Rebecca Keane. Paul Frift is the series produce, while Doctor Foster helmer Tom Vaughan is directing the first three episodes. Production on Victoria is now underway in the North of England. ITV Studios Global Entertainment will handle global sales.
