Fresh off her portrayal as Lieutenant Commander Karen Greer in Amazon’s Without Remorse, Jodie Turner-Smith is gearing up for another commanding performance in the UK’s Channel 5 series Anne Boleyn.
In the newly released trailer, Turner-Smith, who plays the uncompromising Tudor queen, is seen pleading not guilty to charges of treason. The three-part psychological thriller follows the final months of Boleyn’s life from her perspective as she struggles to secure a future for her daughter. It will also show her determination to be seen as an equal in a patriarchal society and her ultimate demise by execution. Anne Boleyn, also starring Paapa Essiedu as Anne’s brother George Boleyn, will air later this month on UK’s Channel 5. A U.S. release date has not been announced.
