‘VANITY FAIR’ SERIES 2018
I’ve already announced that those last two are preparing a mini series based on Thackeray’s classic novel VANITY FAIR and that Olivia Cooke will take the lead role of Becky Sharp, a girl from the 19th century who attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society, and now Da Vinci’s Demon’s star Tom Bateman has been cast as Rawdon Crawley in the series that will also air on Amazon. He and his brother are at risk of losing their family and fortune through their passion and desire to be with Becky Sharp! The seven part series is set in the background of Napoleonic wars in Europe. Bateman already work with ITV on Jekyll and Hyde series which flopped massively. He also appears in Kenneth Branagh‘s Murder on the Orient Express.
