Things between Claire Foy and Paul Bettany are about to get ugly as they have both signed on to star in A Very British Scandal.
The two actors will star as the Duke and Duchess of Argyll in the limited series from Amazon Prime and BBC One.
Here’s a short summary of the series: Famed for her charisma, beauty and style, Margaret (Foy), Duchess of Argyll, dominated the front pages as a divorcee featuring accusations of forgery, theft, violence, drug-taking, secret recording, bribery and an explicit Polaroid picture all played out in the white-hot glare of the 1960s media.
The limited series will be presented in three 60-minute episodes that will investigate the role institutional misogyny played in how the duchess was shamed in society and vilified by the press and the judicial system.
“I’m so excited to work with [director] Anne [Sewitsky], Sarah [Phelps] and Paul on this extraordinary project,” Claire shared in a statement, via TV Line. “To explore through this story how often shame, judgment and controversy surrounds a woman’s sexuality.”
The casting comes just days after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s explosive interview that pulled the veil back on the British monarchy.
Claire and Paul are the stars of two of the most popular streaming shows, The Crown and WandaVision!
