Clive Russell will be playing ‘The Fool’ alongside Helen Mirren in the new Sky Atlantic/HBO series. Currently shooting in palaces and sets across Russia, Latvia and Lithuania, the four-part miniseries, written by Nigel Williams (Elizabeth I, Wodehouse in Exile), will chart the latter years of Catherine’s 34-year reign, as she builds Russia’s reputation as one of the great powers of Europe.
