"Atlantic Crossing" TV-Series for the Crown Princess Martha of Norway

The Scandinavian star Sofia Helin will play Norwegian Crown Princess Martha, who fled the Nazis and befriended U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt, encouraging America to enter World War 2.

"Princess Martha fled the Nazis after the German invasion of Norway, escaping to the United States, where she befriended U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt and lived in the White House. Some historians credit Princess Martha with helping push Roosevelt to enter World War 2 and fight the forces of Fascism."

I must say that I'm quite fond of the habit of having Scandinavian actors from the royal's country of birth portray them as we've seen happen a few times in the last few years.

I am pretty sure that CP Märtha was a formidable woman, but crediting her with "helping push Roosevelt to enter World War 2" is a little bit of an an exaggeration, is it not ?



Anyway, I hope the series ends up being available to US audiences eventually, as I believe CP Märtha and her connection to FDR are unknown to an overwhelming majority of Americans.
