News has just been released that Eve will be starring in the new ITV drama, Victoria! Eve, Peter Firth (Spooks: The Greater Good) and Rufus Sewell (The Man In The High Castle) are the latest cast announcements for the new drama, and will be working alongside Jenna Coleman – who is playing the lead role of Queen Victoria.
Victoria is being hailed as an “ambitious landmark drama” which will follow the early life of Queen Victoria (Jenna Coleman), from her ascension to the throne at the tender age of 18, through to her courtship and marriage to Price Albert. Victoria went on to rule for 63 years, and was the UK’s longest serving monarch until she was overtaken by Elizabeth II earlier this year.
The only information we have at the moment is that Eve will be playing the role of Victoria’s senior dresser, Mrs Jenkins, and that the new series will be released in 2016, starting with the first 90 minute episode and then continuing with a further seven, 60 minute episodes.
