Angela Lansbury leads BBC’s Little Women

Angela Lansbury leads the cast of the BBC’s upcoming adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.

Lansbury will play Aunt March in the miniseries which is being written by Call The Midwife creator Heidi Thomas. I think that’s perfect casting!

The three-part series will also feature Emily Watson as Marmee and Michael Gambon as Mr Lawrence.

The March sisters will be played by newcomer Maya Hawke, who takes the role of willful and adventurous Jo; Willa Fitzgerald will play the eldest daughter Meg; Annes Elwy will play Beth, and Kathryn Newton takes the role of the youngest sister Amy.

Jonah Hauer-King will play everyone’s favourite boy next door, Laurie Laurence.

The series is a co-production between BBC and PBS.
