Trailer Watch: Lily James Wants to Write About “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

“The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society”

Juliet Ashton’s (Lily James, “Cinderella”) career is off to a frustrating start in the trailer for “The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.” As a journalist, she’s not getting the stories she wants. As an author, she’s not getting the audience she wants. In fact, her first book only sold 28 copies worldwide. But a letter from Dawsey Adams (Michiel Huisman, “Game of Thrones”) might mark an end to her career woes.

“Finally, I’ll have something serious to write,” Juliet exclaims when Dawsey informs her of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, a book club that was formed in resistance to the Nazis during World War II. But getting permission to write the story of the club is easier said than done.

While the surviving members are warm towards Juliet, they don’t want her writing about them or their founder,

BBC Is Reshooting Ed Westwick's Role in Ordeal by Innocence With a New Actor

  • Popsugar
The BBC announced today that Ed Westwick's role in the upcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie's Ordeal by Innocence has been recast despite the three-part special wrapping filming in September 2017. In the wake of multiple sexual assault allegations lobbied at the British actor late last year, the BBC shelved their intended airing of the drama during the festive period. However, it seems the production will now see the light of day, with actor Christian Cooke taking over the part from Westwick and reshooting scenes with the ensemble cast including Matthew Goode, Bill Nighy, Ella Purnell, Anna Chancellor, and Alice Eve. Also said to be shelved is the second season of the BBC 2 production White Gold, which featured Westwick in the starring role.

The Crown Eyeing Helena Bonham Carter To Play Princess Margaret

From Hogwarts to Buckingham Palace?

Renown film star Helena Bonham Carter (Harry Potter, Alice in Wonderland) is said to be nearing a deal to play Princess Margaret in The Crown, which will see her take over the role from Vanessa Kirby for seasons 3 and 4.

Netflix hasn’t released any official statement just yet, but the addition of Carter comes as part of a major recasting effort, given the show’s third season will switch gears to focus on Elizabeth II between the years of 1957 and 1964. Indeed, Helena Bonham Carter was initially linked to the part of Elizabeth, before Olivia Colman was ultimately cast as Her Royal Highness. She’ll step into the regal shoes previously worn by Emmy nominee Claire Foy, who, like Kirby, portrayed a high-ranking member of the Royal Family throughout seasons 1 and 2. Now, it’s time for new blood.

Mammoth Screen and Agatha Christie Limited are set to reshoot scenes of the BBC drama “Ordeal by Innocence” with Christian Cooke (“The Art of More”) stepping in to replace Ed Westwick, who has been accused of sexual assault by three women.

An adaptation of an Agatha Christie novel, “Ordeal by Innocence” had wrapped in September and was initially scheduled to air Dec. 26 as part of the Christmas lineup on flagship channel BBC One. But the show was pulled in the wake of the accusations made against Westwick, who is best known for his role in “Gossip Girl.”

The three-part series, co-produced by Mammoth Screen and Agatha Christie Limited, will reshoot all of Westwick’s scenes later this month in Scotland with Cooke and other cast members including Bill Nighy, Anna Chancellor, Matthew Goode and Eleanor Tomlinson.

Princess Margaret's Most Badass Moments From Season 2 of The Crown

The star of The Crown is, unquestionably, Queen Elizabeth II. We watch the young monarch, played by Claire Foy, traverse the crucial ups and downs of the reign that helped shape her into the British icon she is today. That being said, when it comes to the new slate of episodes for the series, the scene-stealing Princess Margaret sashays off with both season two and my heart. The first season of Netflix's $130 million drama delves into Princess Margaret's whirlwind romance with Peter Townsend, a divorcee 16 years her senior. But by season two, Princess Margaret - played with aplomb by the captivating Vanessa Kirby - is in recovery from her heartbreak, which she buries deep within herself by moodily chain-smoking, partying, and applying a copious amount of black eyeliner (who among us . . .). Stand-out episodes like "Beryl" and "Matrimonium" feature the rebellious royal's early days with enigmatic photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones (Matthew Goode

How The Crown's Take on Princess Margaret's Wedding Compares to the Real Thing

One of the most bittersweet moments in all of The Crown's stunning second season - of which there are many - is Princess Margaret's highly anticipated wedding to Antony Armstrong-Jones. The union of the couple, played perfectly by Vanessa Kirby and Matthew Goode, is quietly, politely frowned upon by Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), her husband, Prince Philip (Matt Smith), and other various people in the family. Still, it's exciting to see the relatable royal find love, even if it didn't exactly last Irl. Like season two's take on Queen Elizabeth's trip to Ghana and the royal family's dinner with President John F. Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy, the show attempted to re-create Princess Margaret's wedding as accurately as possible. Although we never get a scene of her and Tony (Matthew Goode) waving to the crowd from the balcony of Buckingham Palace, there are still plenty of

Vanessa Kirby Reveals Why This Sex Scene Was Cut From The Crown Season 2

The Netflix series The Crown is a very popular title for the streaming service. Set against the backdrop of some of the most significant events of the latter half of the 20th century, the drama series centres on Queen Elizabeth II (Claire Foy), and Prince Philip, the Duke Of Edinburgh (Matt Smith) – and all the romance and political machinations that swirl around them.

In such heady narratives, we might expect a number of glamorous love scenes – particularly given the level of chemistry between the leads, and the scandals that have played out around the monarch. But, the show has apparently taken a very particular stance on the issue.

Now that a second season is upon us, actress Vanessa Kirby (playing Princess Margaret – sister of Queen Elizabeth II) has been explaining the lack of sex scenes in The Crown, saying that there was originally one in there, but it was ultimately cut.

Fact Vs. Fiction: Princess Margaret's 'Raunchy' Marriage (Affairs! A Love Child!) on The Crown

There is much more to know about Princess Margaret than her doomed love affair, her taste for liquor and her epic put-downs.

Now a new generation of royals fans will be introduced to her wild marriage to society photographer Antony Armstrong-Jones, a central theme of season two of The Crown.

Margaret (Vanessa Kirby) married Armstrong-Jones (Downton Abbey‘s Matthew Goode) in May 1960 — but even while they planned their engagement, the groom-to-be was still conducting another affair.

As he prepared to head to Queen Elizabeth’s Scottish retreat of Balmoral in the fall of 1959, Armstrong-Jones was sleeping with Camilla Fry, who

Queen of Shade: Princess Margaret’s Reply When Asked to See Photos of a Friend’s Kids Was Epic
Princess Margaret was the Queen of Shade.

Often rude, cantankerous, and certainly snooty, Margaret had the ultimate put-down when asked by a host if they wanted to see some new photographs of the family’s children. It was a moment that tickled actress Vanessa Kirby, who again plays Queen Elizabeth’s younger sister in The Crown, which begins streaming its second season on Netflix on Dec. 8.

“Margaret said, ‘Why on earth would I want to see that?’ It’s just perfect that she didn’t give a crap about someone else’s kids, but the fact that she always says what she means – amazing,
