who will play Queen Victoria?

I watched The Young Victoria starring Emily Blunt, she was amazing in that movie. really look forward for the drama

My favorite, so far, was Victoria & Albert with Victoria Hamilton, Jonathan Firth, David Suchet and Diana Rigg. I will really look forward to this version.

No details yet but I'm sure we'll know soon with production due to start in the autumn.

Replacing DA won't be easy. Who can compete with 'Aunt Violet'? So I hope that they will succeed and give the new show an interesting new angle. I'm quite looking forward to it.

The Young Victoria, Mrs. Brown and Victoria & Albert were my favorites. Victoria Hamilton did an amazing job as Victoria in Victoria & Albert. I'm surprised it's hard to find on YouTube.

Emily Blunt has always been my favourite Victoria. She perfectly captured my idea of her. I would absolutely love if she returned for this series but I'm sure she's too big of a star for that now.

But yes, it's going to be very difficult for it to succeed Downton Abbey.

I absolutely love royal drams but I guess I will be expecting too much from a series regarding the great queen Victoria... it is inevitable!

I'm really looking forward to this new drama and I'm glad they have announced it now so that we have something to look forward to after Downton!

I think the key thing will be have a good mix of newish actors and some really well known ones, household names - surely there must be a place for Dame Maggie Smith!

This sound really, really good.

Victorian Age is actually one of my favourite History parts, so I sure will be looking foward to it.

Emily Blunt did a great Victoria (she was also quite perfect physically). Very intrigued to see who they cast now...

If only they could find the perfect actress who stands 4'11" tall... Her small size made many people underestimate her early in her reign - to their chagrin. :biggrin:

Jenna Coleman is to star as Queen Victoria in the eight-part, television drama Victoria, ITV announced!

'Victoria' miniseries to star 'Doctor Who' veteran Jenna Coleman - UPI.com

Lumutqueen 09-21-2015 08:38 AM

How boring. Jenna is not suited to the role IMO. ITV going for popularity over substance.

Marty91charmed 09-21-2015 09:33 AM

Oh dear... let hire Cressida or Chelsy for the role ass well then! LOL

An Ard Ri 09-21-2015 12:35 PM

I was surprised at the choice of Jenna Coleman,I think she used to be in the English rural soap Emmerdale many years ago.

eya 09-21-2015 02:37 PM

I have no idea who she is but seeing the appearance at least I find it good enough for the role. Why you consider she is not suited to the role?

Mermaid1962 09-21-2015 02:54 PM

I couldn't imagine Colin Firth playing George VI either, until I saw "The King's Speech.":flowers:

Dman 09-21-2015 04:40 PM

Bring in some new talent for the drama!

LauraS3514 09-21-2015 09:12 PM

I just wish they could find an actress who 1) can do the part justice and 2) is only 4'11" tall. I think a lot of QV's personality may have been shaped by her diminutive stature!

Yeah, I think they can find a unknown actress to fit the role of Queen Victoria.
