If I could make my film now my ideal cast would include the following:-
Remember I am thinking of their ages at the time.
Carey Mulligan as Anne
Cate Blanchett or Julianne Moore as the Duchess of York
Chris Hemsworth as Edward
Robert Sheehan as George
Tom Hardy as Hastings
Jack O'Connell as Ratcliffe
Tom Hughes as Lovel
Ioann Gryfydd as Jasper Tudor
Nicole Kidman as Queen Margaret
Chalize Theron as Elizabeth Woodville
Ben Wishaw as Henry Tudor
and as Richard?
Since I saw him play John Lennon, with the emotional journey he went through in that, with such a command of his craft, I knew that he could handle the ups and downs of Richard's life properly. He could also play him from 17 through to 32, without CGI!
My Richard would be Aaron Taylor-Johnson. And he would be absolutely wonderful in the role.
