Anchor Bay Entertainment is set to release the acclaimed Starz Original mini-series The White Queen on a three-disc Blu-ray with Digital HD Ultraviolet and DVD on February 4th.
Based on Philippa Gregory’s series of best-selling novels, The White Queen is a vivid re-telling of the classic War of the Roses family feud (York vs. Lancaster) from the viewpoint of the women involved. The set contains all 10 gorgeous episodes of the drama, and comes loaded with bonus material.
The White Queen stars Rebecca Ferguson (A One Way to Antibes) as Elizabeth Woodville, Max Irons (The Host) as Edward IV, Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) as Elizabeth’s mother Jacquetta Woodville, James Frain (“The Tudors”) as The Kingmaker and Amanda Hale (“The Crimson Petal and the White”) as mother to Henry Tudor, Margaret Beaufort. The series also stars Faye Marsay as Anne Neville, David Oakes as George, Duke of Clarence, Eleanor Tomlinson as Isabel Neville, Aneurin Barnard as Richard, Duke of Gloucester, Ben Lamb as Anthony Rivers and Tom McKay as Jasper Tudor.
The series is a story of love and lust, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, it is uniquely told through the perspective of three different, yet equally relentless women – Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville. In their quest for power, they will scheme, manipulate and seduce their way onto the English throne.
The year is 1464, before the Tudor dynasty ruled the country, and war has been ravaging throughout England over who is the rightful King. It is a bitter dispute between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster.
The House of York’s young and handsome Edward IV is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator, Lord Warwick “The Kingmaker.” But when Edward falls in love with a beautiful Lancastrian commoner, Elizabeth Woodville, Warwick’s plan to control the throne comes crashing down. A violent, high-stakes struggle ensues between Elizabeth, her most fierce adversary, Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort, and Anne Neville, the pawn in her father’s power game – each woman vying for the crown.

WHAT a mummy’s boy! Actor Max Irons may be one of Hollywood’s leading men, but doting mum Sinead Cusack says she finds it impossible not to think of the 28-year-old as her baby boy.
“How do I respond to him on screen? Through a haze of tears,” she told the Diary.
“It’s difficult to be objective about my youngest son and his performance on screen. Very, very difficult but I’m very proud of him.”
Max got pulses racing when he starred alongside Saoirse Ronan in The Host and has been busy shooting a variety of different films.
He’ll share the screen with Les Miserables actress Samantha Barks in The Devil’s Harvest.
Set in rural Ukraine, Max will play the lead role of Yuri, a young man whose life is changed by the invasion of the Red Army.
Max, who worked as a model while studying at drama school, is certainly not being type cast and is gearing up for his next role as Italian composer Vivaldi in the biopic of his life.
I have finally put up new layouts for the site and gallery! We had the other ones up for a while and I thought we needed a change! Thank you to the amazing Ray for the premade! Please let me know if you have any problems!
