Information about this four-part (we think) television drama has been frustratingly hard to come by, and mentions of Jeremy himself in connection with it are almost non-existent. All the publicity about New Worlds has focused on the four young stars: Jamie Dornan, Freya Mavor, Alice Englert and Joe Dempsie; but the cast includes Patrick Malahide, Eve Best, Andrew Woodall, James Cosmo, Guy Henry and Michael Maloney, as well as Jeremy. JN will be playing Charles II during the last years of that king’s reign, when he was apparently more tyrant than the “Merrie Monarch” of his earlier years.
Here’s the latest info I have:
- He’s listed among the cast on the IMDb page, which was created only a few weeks ago.
- There’s an "Episode Guide" for the series on the UK’s Channel 4, where it is set to air. At this point, there’s only only a synopsis for the first episode.
- A press screening of that first episode was held on February 28th. According to the Jamie Dornan Online site “the crew and all the cast” were present. (I’m not sure who they mean by “all”)
- The same Jamie Dornan fan site tweeted that the first episode will be broadcast on Sunday, March 30th. No confirmation on that so far.
My thanks, as always, go to Joan at JN Chat who tracked down all of this. Joan has no peer when it comes to finding information on the elusive Mr N’s career.
