Since then, we have been eagerly awaiting a launch date for the present, and whereas no additional particulars have been introduced but, what we do have is a primary have a look at the Queen and Slim actor in her thrilling new function.
On April 7, Channel 5 shared a teaser trailer for the three-part psychological drama, with a video that confirmed a regal Turner-Smith in an excellent velvet robe and pearl necklace. Talking to Elle Journal about her role, the actor mentioned that she hoped to “inform the story of the lady who sits on the centre of the parable, and make that story an accessible one — one which’s not completely about class, however about humanity. As a result of whether or not a girl is a queen or a housekeeper, she is just not exempt from any of the challenges and trials that girls face in navigating their our bodies, love, or the patriarchy. There’s a possibility to inform a extremely human story and for it to really feel that rather more accessible as a result of a Black girl is taking part in her.”
The discharge date for Anne Boleyn continues to be TBA, so watch this area.
