Share post:

Nicholas Galitzine has become a heartthrob overnight for his role as Prince Henry in Red, White & Royal Blue opening up about his excitement for his upcoming Starz series Mary & George. The actor who notably acted in royal roles first in the Amazon Prime film and is all set to portray George Villiers, the secret lover of the former King of Scotland James VI and I in Mary & George, talked about his interesting resume. The story of this series is based on Benjamin Woolley’s 2017 non-fiction book, The King’s Assassin, and inspired by the true story of Mary Villiers and her son, George. Let’s check out the complete details of this story.

Nicholas Galitzine said the industry knows him as that guy

The 29-year-old said in a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, “It’s not even me flocking to it; the industry knows me as that guy. It gets put on my desk!”

Moreover, talking about his character the 1st Duke of Buckingham he noted, “The three characters, despite having that [in common], feel very distinctly different, so it’s completely unlike anyone I have played before, So it’s sort of a no-brainer wanting to play him.”

The show is based on the 2017 non-fiction book, The King’s Assassin. Its description in the official website reads,”Through scheming, the pair rose from humble beginnings to become the richest, most titled and influential players the English court had ever seen, and the King’s most trusted advisors. All this at a time when England’s place on the world stage was under threat from a Spanish invasion and rioters were taking to the streets to denounce the King.”

Meanwhile, actress Julianne Moore who portrayed the Countess of Buckingham said of her role, “It was so much fun, it was so wonderfully written and so vivid and so human and so entertaining, She’s a character who has almost no subtext, it’s all text, you know? She’s very, very active, she says what she’s thinking, she acts on what she’s thinking, and she even voices her frustration.”

The 63-year-old continues, “There was something freeing about finding someone who doesn’t really care what anybody else thinks, She’s there to survive, you know, so she’ll kind of do anything. She’ll do anything she needs to do for her survival and her children’s survival.”

Galitzine will also be seen as Hayes Campbell in Prime Video’s The Idea of You alongside Anne Hathaway. Both these series will be released one month apart. While he was asked about this series Galitzine says, “I’m so excited for The Idea of You, you know, again it’s portraying something that we’re not really used to seeing on screen which is an age-gap love between a young man and an older women, I’m really thrilled that it’s coming out and Anne is such an incredible actress… Very excited for people to watch it!”

The Idea of You will start streaming from May 2 on Prime Video and Mary & George will premiere from April 5 on Starz.
