The cast also includes Game of Thrones star Mark Stanley as Henry VIII, I May Destroy You star Paapa Essiedu as George Boleyn, and Lola Petticrew as Henry's third wife, Jane Seymour. Speaking of the role, Jodie said: "I am so excited to join these exciting filmmakers in bringing the story of one of history's most controversial queens to the screen. Delving deeper into Anne Boleyn’s immense strengths while examining her fatal weaknesses and vulnerabilities, [writer Eve Hedderwick Turner's] scripts immediately captured my imagination.
"In the hands of Lynsey Miller, the legend of this formidable queen and fierce mother will be seen as a deeply human story that is still so relevant for today. I look forward to bringing my heart and spirit into this daring retelling of the fall of this iconic woman."
