Jack Lowden Joins The Cast Of Mary Queen Of Scots
Studying to be an actor from a young age, Lowden has primarily appeared in plays in the relatively short amount of time he has been acting but is in the middle of a transition to film and television. Making his first TV appearance on the British web series Being Victor in 2010, he followed this up with several minor roles before starring in the BBC‘s miniseries adaptation of War & Peace. He is set to appear soon in Christopher Nolan‘s war film Dunkirk.
Deadline, the source of this story, shares the following information about the historical Queen Mary:
Crowned the queen of Scotland before she was a year old, Mary added to that pedigree when her first husband became France’s king and she became queen consort in 1559. Despite that auspicious start, things didn’t go well from there. She later married her first cousin, Lord Darnley, a bad match that ended with his murder.
When she quickly married the man suspected of orchestrating the killing, an uprising against the couple resulted in her being imprisoned in Loch Leven Castle.
