The White Princess is the newest series from Starz that brings a popular book to the small screen with film worthy production. We were able to sit down and speak with the stars of the show, Jodi Comer (Princess Elizabeth) and Jacob Levy-Collins (King Henry VII). The series premieres on April 16, at 8pm EST.
Jodie Comer, who plays Lizzie of York, aka “The White Princess” on Starz, tells Access Hollywood about her plans for premiere night – Sunday, April 16. Then, the British actress reveals what part of the first series – “The White Queen” – she saw before filming the new show. And, Jodie discusses Lizzie’s relationship with Margaret Beaufort (Michelle Fairley), mother to the man Lizzie is betrothed to – King Henry VII (Jacob Collins-Levy). “The White Princess” premieres Sunday, April 16 at 8 PM ET/PT on Starz.
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.
Starz released on Thursday the first teaser for its upcoming drama series, starring Jodie Comer as the titular royal. Glimpses of Comer as Elizabeth of York, the Queen of England in the late 15th century are shown — including a dramatic removal-of-the-crown shot.
It’s a sequel to BBC’s 2013 series The White Queen, which, like The White Princess, was adapted from a Philippa Gregory historical novel. Gregory’s first three novels of the Cousins’ War series were the basis of The White Queen.
Writer Emma Frost and director Jamie Payne return from The White Queen. Frost will serve as showrunner, and Payne will reportedly direct five of the eight episodes. Gregory will executive produce.
See the teaser above. The White Princess also stars Jacob Collins-Levy, Essie Davis, and Game of Thrones‘ Michelle Fairley.
