The White Queen


Okay, my little history buffs, the Starz channel is now featuring The White Queen and it will be premiering tonight, August 10th at 8 p.m.. The show is based on the Philippa Gregory novel The Cousins’ War. The action is connected to the War of the Roses; the war between the House of York (The White Rose) and the House of Lancaster (The Red Rose).
For those of you who were diehard fans of The Tudors, than you’re going to enjoy this show, too.

This show follows the war between followers of King Henry and King Edward, but the spotlight is really on the women behind or on the throne:  Elizabeth Woodville played by Rebecca Ferguson , Margaret Beaufort played by  Amanda Hale,  and Anne Neville played by Faye Marsay.
Max Irons who plays Edward IV falls in love with and secretly marries Elizabeth Woodville ( a widow with two young sons)


This action not only pisses off his right hand man Richard Neville (James Frain) the Earl of Warwick, but Edward’s mother.
I’m excited to see James Frain in this show. He’s a joy to watch; the perfect bad guy; just like his role as Franklin Mott in True Blood.
                                       Check out the show and let me know what you think.
