They should have switched those roles.
Robbie is much more beautiful than Ronan. (In fact, I think Ryan actually has quite a strong resemblance to Elizabeth I.

On the other hand, Ronan is the better actress so maybe that has something to do with it.

Ryan? You mean Ronan?
Saoirse is a fantastic actress but I don't care for the casting of Margot. She is too conventionally pretty and Cate Blanchett will always be the perfect Elizabeth I.

Yes, sorry.

Ronan would be better as Elizabeth, imo.
Robbie is more conventionally attractive, so she should play Mary.

Can't wait for this one...yayyy!!

I very much loved the 1971 movie with Glenda Jackson as Elizabeth I and Vanessa Redgrave as Mary Stuart. But the idea of Redgrave-who was then in her mid-30's at least-playing 15-16 year old Mary during her years in France was just beyond absurd.

Redgrave is an amazing actress but come on!

I own a copy of the John Guy book and it's certainly a different view compared to the older account - the big twist [SPOILERS] is that Lord Burleigh was the bad guy not Elizabeth. This has been in the pipeline for a long time as I can remember that Scarlett Johansen was floated as a possible Mary about 6-7 years ago.

Agree that Margot Robbie is too conventionally pretty as Elizabeth, also Saiorese Ronan [sic?] is too short - MQS was huge by the standards of the time and most actresses are often too short.

Here's a recap of other portrayals of Mary in film and television over the years.

I'm glad to see Margot getting some more work, I really like her as an actress. The only thing I like about Saoirse is her name.

XeniaCasiraghi did you see Saoirse Ronan in "Atonement"? That movie broke my heart. I was obsessed with it for a few weeks. I wanted to kill the little brat that was Saiorse's character. I guess that means she's a good actress!

And yes...I love love love the name "Saoirse"...along with Sinead and Siobhan. Gaelic names are the most beautiful, imo.

I do find the casting a bit puzzling...the stunningly beautiful Margot Robbie will play Elizabeth I, a woman not renowned for her looks, while the average pretty Saoirse Ronan is cast as the Queen of Scots...said to be one of the most ravishing women of her time?

Hmmm...

Can't wait to see this movie!

I looked at the picture of Robbie as Elizabeth I. You can't recognize her. She may have taken the role to prove she has range as an actress and not to be typecasted for her looks.
