TOM CULLEN JOINS KIT HARINGTON'S 'GUNPOWDER' BBC 17TH CENTURY EPIC MINI SERIES! CATHERINE ZETA JONES AS OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND IN 'FEUD' SERIES, 2ND SEASON ABOUT PRINCE CHARLES & DIANA

'GUNPOWDER' EPIC TV SERIES
TOM CULLEN JOINS KIT HARINGTON AS GUY FAWKES
I informed you last week that Liv Tyler and Mark Gatiss have joined Kit Harington's BBC epic series GUNPOWDER and now they have new cast additions lead by Tom Cullen whom we will also be seeing next season in History's KNIGHTFALL epic series. The three part series will see Harington playing Robert Catesby, the 30 year old Warwickshire gentleman who masterminded the failed assassination attempt on King James in the famous 17th century GUNPOWDER treason.
As Radio Times confirms, Mark Gatiss has been cast as the lead spymaster Robert Cecil, Liv Tyler will be Catesby’s cousin Anne Vaux who becomes suspicious of her relation's activities, while Tom Cullen will play famous Guy Fawkes the legendary conspirator against the king who will be played by Derek Riddell! Shaun Dooley plays Sir William Wade, Lieutenant of The Tower and Cecil’s right hand man, with David Bamber as the Earl of Northumberland and Kevin Eldon as Sir Joseph Hawksworth. Edward Holcroft (photo below) will appear as Catesby’s friend and co-plotter Thomas Wintour, and Robert Emms  as Father Gerard, a firebrand young priest.The series will portray Catesby as a committed Catholic in Protestant England who struggles to bring up his young son in an increasingly intolerant society, having recently lost both his wife and father. It would be such a thrill if BBC airs the series in November!

FIRST 'FEUD' TV SERIES LOOK
AT CATHERINE ZETA JONES AS LEGENDARY OLIVIA DE HAVILLAND
Meanwhile, you can check out a gorgeous photo of Catherine Zeta Jones as Hollywood diva Olivia de Havilland from FEUD anthology series which starts this Sunday starring Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange as Oscar winners Bette Davis and Joan Crawford in the story of their legendary rivalry! It has been announced today that the second season, ordered today, will focus on the royal FEUD between Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Seems tasteless to me, just like anything else Ryan Murphy produces.

    1. you should follow her page at Facebook, she is such a lovely and warm lady totally opposite of the Hollywood cliché. She cooks and sews over there like a proper housewife :)

    2. I don't follow hardly anyone over at the Facebook dahlink. Too many stories will clog my feed and keep me glued to reading what everyone is up to, eating away at my time to be a proper cooking and sewing housewife ;) Will mosey over and have a gander at what she's up to though.

  3. These all sound pretty interesting especially in the interpretations of history. The feud between Joan and Bette sounds like some great acting fun. The King James era epic sounds intriguing as well since I'm not very familiar with that famous plot involving Guy Fawkes.

    The other royal feud certainly sounds like it has a potential for tastelessness, but it's also the kind of story that I think will draw a large audience. Princess Diana stories still seem to be in scandal rags that I see for sale at the check-out counters in supermarkets. She's apparently still a hot commodity.

    1. That plot is very legendary here in Europe, they sing Remember remember the fifth of November, the gunpowder treason and plot? each November and they burn Guy Fawkes straw dolls :) Michael Fassbender actually played him in previous adaptation and Robert Carlyle was the idiotic king, methinks.

      Yes, it is interesting how Diana manages to manipulate the media and public just like she did while she was alive

  4. Going to look for Feud as Jessica Lange is one of my favorite actresses. The trailer looks promising.
