Rupert will appear as Lord Stanley in a new ten part BBC drama, The White Queen, based on an adaptation of Philippa Gregory‘s vivid bestselling historical novel series “The Cousin’s War”.

According to author Philippa Gregory’s Facebook page, The White Queen will air on BBC One “sometime in the Spring” so hopefully that means April/May sometime. It’s been picked up for US transmission by the Starz network but no word yet on when they might show it.

More details on the drama can be found on the BBC website and the IMDb entry.

The White Queen has been filming on location in Belgium and Rupert was spotted passing through Brussels and then coming back into the UK in early November 2012 and then again on January 21st 2013 at St Pancras in the morning (“looking hot and bearded”) and having dinner that evening in Bruges (sporting some very interesting facial hair!)



I haven't read the source novels but as I understand it, Lord Stanley only really comes into the story at the end so unfortunately we may only see Rupert in the last episode or two.

It's also been announced that the part of Lord Strange, Lord Stanley's son, will be played by Andrew Gower, probably most well known for his role as 'Cutler' in Being Human.

No official photos yet - will share them as soon as I see them!

“sometime in the Spring”
A "new" version: according to twitter of Michael Maloney (plays Henry Stafford) TWQ will air "late summer":

Re: “sometime in the Spring”
I've seen "Spring", "late Spring", "late Summer", "late 2013" - guess we'll just have to wait until the BBC makes an official announcement!

Re: “sometime in the Spring”
Great that Mr.Maloney "twitted" to you about May!

Anyway David Oakes posted a nice promo on his Twitter https://twitter.com/David_Oakes/status/299572880335843329
BTW, his version is "this Summer" :=))

I hope Rupert's images are cooming soon!
