BBC One has announced the cast for its upcoming adaptation of “Lady Chatterley’s Lover,” the 1928 Italian romance novel by D.H. Lawrence.

Holliday Grainger, who starred in Showtime’s “The Borgias” and A&E’s recent miniseries “Bonnie & Clyde,” will play the title role, with “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden playing gamekeeper Oliver Mellors. James Norton, who appears in BBC One’s “Happy Valley,” will play Lady Chatterley’s war-wounded husband Sir Clifford Chatterley.

The novel was considered highly controversial at the time of its publication due to its explicit sexual content, and a trial was held in Britain in 1960 to determine if the book fell under the country’s Obscene Publications Act. It appears in an episode of “Mad Men” as well, with Joan Holloway’s possession of the book causing a stir in the office due to its erotic content.

The 90-minute drama will be written and directed by Jed Mercurio and produced by Hartswood Films in association with Serena Cullen Productions. (source)

“Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden has traded his sword for a glass slipper, joining the cast of Disney’s live-action “Cinderella,” the studio announced Wednesday.

The 27-year-old Scottish actor will star opposite “Downton Abbey’s” Lily James, who will play the titular folk hero in the movie, which will hit theaters next year. Cate Blanchett headlines as Cinderella’s evil stepmother.

In Madden, who was a relative unknown before winning the role of Robb Stark on HBO’s hit fantasy drama series, “Cinderella” director Kenneth Branagh is getting an actor who is willing to take his lumps for the art.

“I was taking horse-riding lessons maybe four times a week because I had never ridden before,” Madden told the News last year. “I wanted to make sure when I go on set and I’m on a horse or doing any scene like that, I’d look like Robb would look, which is someone who had been on a horse his whole life. So there were a lot of sore thighs.”

It was announced today that Richard Madden, Tim Blake Nelson, Marton Csokas and Conor Leslie will be joining the cast of Discovery Channel’s first-ever, scripted mini-series KLONDIKE (wt).

Richard Madden will be playing the role of Bill Haskell. Madden comes to KLONDIKE after recently finishing production on the upcoming feature film “A Promise” with Rebecca Hall. Additionally, Madden can be seen reprising his starring role as Robb Stark in the third season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

The mini-series, previously announced last year, is based on Charlotte Gray’s book Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike, and brings to life the tale about six strangers and their collective fight for survival and wealth in a small, frontier town in the remote Klondike. KLONDIKE is a co-production between Discovery, Entertainment One (eOne), and Nomadic Pictures, in association with Scott Free Productions. International distribution is handled by eOne Television. Paul Scheuring (“Prison Break,” “A Man Apart”) is the primary writer and will serve as Executive Producer, along with Ridley Scott and David W. Zucker; as well as John Morayniss and Michael Rosenberg for eOne. Eileen O’Neill and Dolores Gavin will serve as Executive Producers for Discovery.

KLONDIKE follows the lives of two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein, in the late 1890s as they undertake the next, gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory. This man-versus-nature tale places our heroes in a land full of undiscovered wealth, but ravaged by harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters including greedy businessmen, seductive courtesans and native tribes witnessing the destruction of their people and land by opportunistic entrepreneurs.

Production begins in March 2013 under the direction of Simon Cellan Jones (“Generation Kill,”, “Treme”) on location in Alberta, Canada. The series will be produced with assistance of the Government of Alberta, Alberta Film Development Program.

Rebecca Hall, Alan Rickman, “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden and rising British actress Shannon Tarbet are set to star in romantic drama “A Promise”, according to Britain’s The Daily Mail. French director Patrice Leconte is set to make his English-language debut on the film, which is an adaptation of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig’s novella “Journey into the past.”

Seth in the early 20th century, the story follows a young man Ludwig (Madden), who goes to work for a wealthy older man (Rickman) and ends up falling for his wife (Hall). The two are separated by circumstance and the First World War, and their relationship is tested when they meet again nine years later. No word on who British stage actress Tarbet will play, but filming will begin soon.

Hall first caught audiences’ attention when she starred in Woody Allen’s “Vicky Christina Barcelona”, in which she played Vicky to Scarlett Johansson’s Christina, and then opposite Michael Sheen in Ron Howard’s Oscar nominated “Frost/Nixon.” The prolific British actress is currently shooting “Iron Man 3″ opposite Robert Downey, Jr.

Madden, who plays Robb Stark on hit HBO series “Game of Thrones”, began showing up on shortlists for high profile roles in recent months along with his similarly-aged co-stars, and was last seen in miniseries “Birdsong” opposite Eddie Redmayne. He’s attached to indie drama “Long Nighs Short Mornings.”
