Prime Video’s upcoming dramedy series ‘My Lady Jane’ has announced new cast members. The series is currently filming in London.
The new members include Dominic Cooper as Lord Seymour, Rob Brydon as Lord Dudley, Will Keen as the Duke of Norfolk, Anna Chancellor as Lady Frances Grey, and Jim Broadbent as the Duke of Leicester.
They join the existing cast: Emily Baderin the lead role of Jane Grey, Edward Bluemel as Guildford Dudley, and Jordan Peters as King Edward.
The official synopsis reads:
“In 1553, Lady Jane Grey was crowned Queen of England. Nine days later, she lost the throne—and shortly thereafter, her head. But what if history were different? My Lady Jane is a satirical comedic fantasy series that reimagines the rise and reign of Lady Jane Grey (Emily Bader).”
“When her ambitious mother sells Jane’s hand to the highest bidder, Jane is dismayed to discover that her dreaded husband-to-be, Guildford Dudley (Edward Bluemel), is an infuriatingly attractive stranger with a dark secret, one that has the potential to get them both killed. But there are greater conspiracies afoot, like a plot to murder her cousin, King Edward, and throw the entire kingdom into chaos.”
“A sharp-tongued, warm-hearted story full of romance, adventure, and fantasy, My Lady Jane reveals that true love is real, people are not always what they seem, and even doomed heroines can save themselves. Long live the Queen.”
Gemma Burgess is the creator, showrunner and executive producer.
