Sunday night TV stars head to the big screen

Poldark’s Eleanor Tomlinson and Line of Duty’s Martin Compston have both landed roles alongside some major Hollywood acting talent.

Tomlinson has joined Colette, starring Keira Knightley and Dominic West.

The film follows Gabrielle Sidonie Colette (Knightley), whose husband, the charismatic egomaniacal writer Willy (West), permits Colette to write her novels using his name. The phenomenal success of her Claudine novel series makes Willy a famous writer and the lack of recognition for her work begins to gnaw on Colette and their marriage starts to fall apart.

Meanwhile Line of Duty star Compston will appear alongside Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie in Mary Queen of Scots.

He will play the Queen’s third husband, the Earl of Bothwell. Ronan is starring in the title role with Robbie as her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I.
