Better not underestimate the White Princess. "She always finds a way to win."
Check out the trailer for STARZ's new historical mini-series chronicling the 15th-century life of Elizabeth ("Lizzie") of York, the Queen of England.
English actress Jodie Comer, of the British TV series "My Mad Fat Diary," plays the titular royal-turned-cunning politician in this sequel to 2013's Emmy-nominated mini-series "The White Queen," both of which are based on the best-selling "Cousins' War" book series by historian novelist Philippa Gregory (The Other Boleyn Girl).
Brought to you by the same team behind "The White Queen," writer Emma Frost and director Jamie Payne, "The White Princess" also stars Jacob Collins-Levy as Henry VII, the King of England; "The Babadook" star Essie Davis as Lizzie's mother, Dowager Queen Elizabeth; Willow's Joanne Whalley as Lizzie's aunt, Margaret, Duchess of Burgundy; model-turned-actress Suki Waterhouse as Lizzie's younger sister, Cecily of York, and former "Game of Thrones" star Michelle Fairley as Lizzie's rival and mother-in-law, Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and Derby.
Slated for eight episodes, the STARZ drama will begin airing on Sunday, April 16th.
This isn't marriage ... this is war. Though the union of Henry VII to Elizabeth of York may stop unrest in Britain, it can't stop the war between them.
Drawn from the novel of the same name by Philippa Gregory, "The White Princess" is a tale of power, family, love and betrayal, charting one of the most tumultuous times in British history uniquely from the point of view of the women. The tempestuous marriage between Elizabeth of York (Lizzie) and King Henry VII, officially marks the conclusion of The War of the Roses, but the real battle for the throne is far from over.
