'ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE' 
CHRISTIAN COOKE TO REPLACE ED WESTWICK IN BBC'S MINI
Christian Cooke will be the new Mickey Argyil
Two people have been replaced in their small screen roles today, people! Although it has already been completed and ready to air on BBC at Christmas, Agatha Christie's ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE will be reshot and Ed Westwick's scenes will be replaced with new ones starring Christian Cooke after Westwick has been involved in an alleged sex scandal! Cooke will now play the character of Mickey Argyll next to the cast that includes Bill Nighy, Matthew Goode, Eleanor Tomlinson and Luke Treadaway. Set at Christmas 1954 it sees wealthy philanthropist Rachel Argyll murdered at her family estate Sunny Point. Her adopted son Jack Argyll is arrested for her murder but he vehemently protests his innocence which means that another member of the family might be the murderer.

'THE CROWN' TV SERIES
HELENA BONHAM CARTER TO PLAY PRINCESS MARGARET?
Helena has played the queen's mother already!
Meanwhile, over at Netflix, who are currently airing the second season of their hit series THE CROWN, Helena Bonham Carter is apparently in talks to play rebellious princess Margaret in the third season which will see Olivia Colman playing the queen instead of Claire Foy. She will replace Vanessa Kirby in the role after, which is very interesting, playing Margaret's mother in The King's SpeechHelena Bonham Carter was, apparently, also in the running to play the queen herself but will now play her sister. There are also rumours that Matt Smith, who plays young Prince Philip, could be replaced in the third season by Michael Sheen or even David Tennant. Matthew Goode is playing Margaret's husband in season 2.

  1. Helena Bonham Carter did a great job portraying the Queen Mother in "The King's Voice." Now she can play one of her daughters!

  2. I like Helena Bonham Carter. She's always interesting to watch. And she doesn't seem to age. At all.

  3. A Hollywood actor involved in a sex scandle? That’s hard to believe ;)

    I like Helena. She is never boring, that’s for sure!

    1. It is just an alleged scandal, which means maybe it did not even happen.
