As if to emulate the BBC’s Wolf Hall, historic court drama Versailles is coming to BBC 2 later this month. The series promises to be as epic in the sexual and political scheming, amid the intrigue and backstabbing made more interesting with the inclusion of two British actors in this French drama, George Blagden and Alexander Vlahos.
Alexander Vlahos, known already to British audiences as Mordred in the BBC Series Merlin commented on the casting: “At first we thought we were going to get our heads ripped off, a pair of British actors daring to play these historic French characters. But it has gone down very well”.
George Blagden also stars in the drama.
