The Tudor Society

Mary Queen of Scots movie due in 2018

Apologies for the delay in posting this news but I was away in Moscow when it was being shared around on social media. Thank you to all those who sent me messages about it.

A new film due out in 2018 will be of interest to Tudor Society members, not only because it's on Mary, Queen of Scots, but because it is based on John Guy's excellent book on Mary, My Heart Is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, which is a must-read. The film's cast includes Saoirse Ronan as Mary, Queen of Scots, Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I, Jack Lowden as Lord Darnley, Martin Compston as the Earl of Bothwell, Joe Alwyn as Robert Dudley, Brendan Coyle as Matthew Stewart, 4th Earl of Lennox, and David Tennant as Anthony Babington, so some big names.

Photos of Margot Robbie's transformation have been doing the rounds and here's a video:

I have high hopes for this movie with it being based on John Guy's book - fingers crossed!
