'LITTLE WOMEN' MINI SERIES
JULIAN MORRIS CAST AT BBC
Although his gig in BBC's Man in an Orange Shirt ends this Monday, our dearest Julian Morris is staying on BBC as he has just been cast to star in their new three part series on LITTLE WOMEN! He joins Angela Lansbury (as the great aunt), Emily Watson (as the mother) and
Michael Gambon (as their benevolent neighbour Mr. Laurence) in the story set against the backdrop of the Civil War about four sisters (Maya Hawke, Willa Fitzgerald, Annes Elwy and Kathryn Newton) on their journey from childhood to adulthood. With the help of their mother Marmee, while their father is away at war, the girls navigate what it means to be a young woman. Jonah Hauer King will play Laurie Laurence, the charming boy next door, while Julian Morris will be his earnest and intelligent tutor. Dylan Baker has been cast as Mr March, the army chaplain who’s called away to war, but is a doting father to the girls. Dickensian's Mark Stanley will
play Professor Bhaer, a sensitive literary man caring for his two orphaned nephews. The series, which is shooting in Ireland, will air on Masterpiece in USA.
