A first look has been released for part 2 of Starz’ THE SPANISH PRINCESS, in which Stephanie Levi-John pays regular character ‘Lina de Cardonnes’.
Showrunners Emma Frost and Matthew Graham have said in response to ‘what’s in store for Lina?’:
FROST: Lina and Catherine’s relationship will come under pressure in the way that modern women’s relationships do sometimes when one person has something that the other person desperately wants. Lina and Oviedo are our moral heart of the show. Oviedo will rise in the court. He will be noticed by Henry, and his status improves and increases. He becomes part of Henry’s inner circle. For a while.
GRAHAM: We’re following Lina and Oviedo into the life they’re making for themselves in London, raising a family. It gives us a chance to explore the pressures that they face at key moments in history, one of those being the gradual resentment of people [toward] foreigners, not people of color, but just people who were not English trading and living in England. They gave us an opportunity to write interesting parallels about immigration and Brexit.
