Romola Garai, Jessica Raine join Becoming Elizabeth

Romola Garai and Jessica Raine have joined the cast of Starzplay’s latest historical drama, Becoming Elizabeth.

The new series stars Alicia von Rittburg as the young Elizabeth I.

The cast also includes Oliver Zetterström, Tom Cullen, Jamie Parker, Alex McQueen and Bella Ramsey.

It tells the early life of England’s most iconic Queen. Long before she ascended the throne, young Elizabeth Tudor was an orphaned teenager who became embroiled in the political and sexual politics of the English court.

The death of King Henry VIII sets into motion a dangerous scramble for power. His surviving children find themselves pawns in a game between the great families of England and the powers of Europe who vie for control of the country.
