I don't understand the hate for Jenna Coleman. She is on Dr Who so she has name recognition. She 5'2" so it not like she is 6'.

What TV network would spend millions on a TV show and cast a complete unknown as its lead? Here in the U.S., when they put unknown kids in roles in family shows and adults are known actors.

The people producing it are the same people that did Poldark. I liked Poldark very much. Maybe PBS will pick up the Victoria series for airing in the States.

Well, that was rude. She was an actor (with the co-lead role in Doctor Who!) way before she was photographed ONE TIME with Harry! It could hardly be seen as riding his coattails!

Hm, I will sound like a party pooper now, but another portrayal of Victoria? Queen Mary Teck and her family would be interesting for example.

Sorry! I meant that it is a strange coincidence that a supposed "date" or anyway, a female acquaintance of Prince Harry is going to play the role of a royal, so connected to Harry! It's funny That's all...

Queen Mary had such an interesting life. I would love a biopic about her. I'm reading her mother's memoirs now.

Yup, you could have as first episode her family being disgraced by debts, as second episode Florence, then her engagement to AV + his death, then George + wedding/family, becoming Queen and the last one about Edward VIII. Her life has everything for a good series. Hello Mr Fellowes, if you read this, consider it

As to Coleman, I don't see why she shouldn't be suited in this role? Maybe we will be surprised in a pleasant way :)

Coleman probably would be great for the role.

I just happen to think there are fresh new talent out there that would love the opportunity to debut in this new drama about Queen Victoria. It's easy to just cast a great deal of well known and well established actors for projects like this.

Starts filming in Oct. They can cast unknown people in the smaller supporting roles but more established people in the bigger roles. If it was a total unknown, you would get just the hard core Royal buff with Coleman you might get a the person who knows her from Dr Who to tune it. Plus there is selling the show overseas.

Most actors start in small roles and get some notice for a supporting role which can lead to a bigger role in a future film. Emily Blunt got noticed in The Devils Wears Prada and then followed it up with Young Victoria and other lead roles.

I haven't seen Jenna in" Dr. Who" as I'm probably one of a rare breed who doesn't watch "Dr. Who".

However, I remember her well from "Emmerdale" . She was very good and garnered a number of acting award nominations for that early role.

I loved her in the wonderful mini-series "Dancing on the Edge".

She also made, for me, a totally beguiling Lydia Wickham in "Death Comes to Pemberley".

I love the idea of her playing the young Victoria.

I don't watch Doctor Who, but I remember her being in Emmerdale. I think she'll do a great job. I wish they'd chosen a different period of royal history, though: we get so many dramas about the Tudors and about Queen Victoria, and very few about anyone else!

Well, if the costumes are anything to go by it should be a very good series.

Queen Victoria was not ugly in her young age.
The most beautiful "Victoria" was Victoria Hamilton to me.

Very true, Victoria Hamilton was the best when it came to playing Queen Victoria. If people don't know who we're talking about, go to YouTube and watch The 2001 series 'Victoria and Albert.' She was indeed the best.
