This is the official casting for the BBC miniserie “Richard II” in which Rory Kinnear will appear later this year. Straight from the horse’s mouth, he will begin filming soon after a short post Hamlet break.
Clemence Poesy the Harry Potter star, has been picked to play Richard II’s Queen in an epic film based on Shakespeare’s historical play about the battle for the English crown. Ben Whishaw, who performed a landmark Hamlet for Trevor Nunn at the Old Vic, will play the monarch who believes he has the divine right to be King […] Rory Kinnear, who received a best actor nomination for his acclaimed Hamlet at the National Theatre, has been chosen to play the ambitious aristocratic warrior Bolingbroke, who ruthlessly seizes the throne from Richard. Director Rupert Goold, making his first major film, will shoot the BBC TV project in June and July.
