TROY: Fall of a City

STARTING NEXT WEEK ON BBC!  Saturday, Feb. 17th
What better way to warm yourself up a bit during cold winter nights than with some scantily clad Greek warriors and princesses, starting next Saturday, February 17th, when British BBC will start airing TROY: FALL OF A CITY, eight episode brand new epic television series!

TROY: FALL OF A CITY an epic tale of mortals and gods, has a psychologically rich and sweeping narrative which goes back to the story’s origins: to the judgement of Paris, his scandalous love affair with Helen, and the ill-starred prophecy surrounding his birth. Told from the perspective of the Trojan royal family at the heart of the siege, TROY: FALL OF A CITY is a rich story of love, intrigue, betrayal and belonging. Combining thrilling adventure with heart-breaking intimacy, it conveys the big themes of human existence and identity; of people battling to retain their sense of humanity and compassion amid the devastation and destruction of war.

David Threlfall is King Priam of Troy
Tom Weston Jones is the heroic and tragic prince Hector of Troy
Bella Dayne is flimsy Helen of Troy whose adultery starts the war

THE CAST OF THE 8 PART DRAMA
The eight part saga, which will also air on Netflix after the run in UK,  will see Louis Hunter and Bella Dayne as Paris and Helen, the two lovers whose passionate affair plunges Greece and Troy into war, threatening to bring both empires to their knees. David Threlfall plays Paris’ father, King Priam of  Troy, alongside Frances O’Connor as Hecuba, Queen of Troy, and Tom Weston-Jones  as their eldest son brave Hector. They are joined by a cast ncluding Joseph Mawle as Odysseus the king of Ithaca, Chloe Pirrie as Hector’s wife Andromache, Johnny Harris as Agamemnon the king of Mycenae who attacks Troy with his brother Menalaus, David Gyasi as Achilles (yes, for some reason he will be black and so will be his lover Patroklus and also the almighty Zeus indeed), and Jonas Armstrong as Menelaus, the King of Sparta whose marriage to Helen is destroyed when Paris arrives in his city. Further casting includes Alfred Enoch as the Trojan general Aeneas the cousin of King Priam, David Avery as Xanthius, and Aimee-Ffion Edwards as Priam and Hecuba’s daughter, prophetess princess Cassandra.
