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!

Promises an evening’s entertainment laced with drink, sex and violence. Chin up, chin up and play the game. 19 September

On a recent Wednesday, the British actor Max Irons accompanied a reporter to the Cloisters, the museum devoted to the art of medieval Europe. It was a setting that may have felt familiar to King Edward IV, the character Mr. Irons plays on the Starz series “The White Queen,” a lusty take on the Wars of the Roses.
Of course, Mr. Irons can claim a regal bloodline of his own: he is a son of the actors Jeremy Irons and Sinéad Cusack.
Stepping into the Late Gothic Hall gallery, Mr. Irons scoped out the altarpiece and tapestries. He admitted having done some remedial reading for his role. “There’s a fantastic bookshop in London called Foyles, and if you turn up and say, ‘I need the definitive book on Plantagenet history,’ some guy with a crutch will appear” — at this point the six-foot-plus actor with perfectly defined features hunched over, mimicked a wizened old troll waving a book — “and he will say, ‘I’ve got it.’ ”
As he made his way through the galleries, Mr. Irons, whose 28th birthday is Thursday, drew sidelong glances from other museumgoers. Perhaps they recognized him, or perhaps they were just struck by his model good looks, which at one point were featured in ads by Burberry.
Mr. Irons stood quietly in front of the famed Unicorn Tapestries, remarking on the vibrant colors, and trying to take in the story line. He noted depictions of men with shoulder-length bobs, and recalled an article in The Daily Mail (“a terrible newspaper, terrible”) that cited anachronisms when “The White Queen” was shown on the BBC. The article, referring to zippers, stated: “Howlers include costumes with zips — which weren’t invented until the late 19th century — Georgian windows and modern guttering.”
Mr. Irons wandered down a staircase, reaching the Gothic Chapel, filled with stained-glass windows, the light moodily changing as the sun was covered by clouds. He remarked on the contrast with the chapels in the series. “We had very dark, dingy, dirty chapels indeed, like the one where Edward IV prayed at one point,” he said. “It was nothing as beautiful as this.”
I have just added a beautiful new shoot of Max in Interview Magazine to the gallery. Also below you can read the interview he did with them.
Though you wouldn’t know it from his patient demeanor, Max Irons is tired. The 27-year-old actor has just finished his run as Stephen Bellamy in Beau Willimon’s play Farragut North in London. “He never comes off stage,” he explains. “It was killer, but it was great.” Now Irons is in New York for a few days to see his girlfriend and do press for his finale of his Starz miniseries, The White Queen. “I’ve only known her for five months or so,” says Irons of his girlfriend. “This is the first time I’ve been here with her. I met all of her friends in one go last night.” Was it intimidating? “It was, but then within 10 minutes I thought, ‘No, they’re good people,’ which is nice,” he confides.
The son of British actor Jeremy Irons and Irish actress Sinéad Cusack, Max is tall, gracious, good-looking, and casually charming. In The White Queen, he plays the frequently overlooked 15th century king, Edward IV, as he fights against various members of his kin for the throne of England during the War of the Roses. The maternal grandfather of Henry VIII, Edward is perhaps most famous as the father of Edward V and Richard of Shrewsbury, the two preteen “Princes in the Tower” that were murdered by their uncle and immortalized in John Everett Millais’ famous portrait. “They were ruthless,” comments Irons of the time period. “You had to be to stay in control—your own brother is trying to kick you off the throne. You go up to the North of England and come back to find you’ve been replaced by someone else, so you have to be vigilant and very aggressive.”
While The White Queen will air its season finale this weekend, Irons’ work for the year is far from done. The actor recently wrapped an adaptation of Laura Wade’s play Posh with Sam Claflin, Douglas Booth, Holliday Grainger, Jessica Brown Findlay, Natalie Dormer, and Freddie Fox. Next, Irons will head to Ukraine to film The Devil’s Harvest, followed by Keys to the Street, a Ruth Rendell book adapted by Christopher Nolan and costarring Gemma Arterton and Tim Roth (a man Irons dubs “a fucking legend”).
EMMA BROWN: The White Queen moves very quickly. I thought the entire series would cover a few years at most and then within the first few episodes, you already have all of these children.
MAX IRONS: Tell me about it. Towards the end, one of them was older than I was in real life. Edward was a very fertile young man.
BROWN: Edward seems quite forgiving.
IRONS: He was incredibly forgiving. His brother and his best friend and his advisor tried to kill him and then he had them back to court, invited them back. But then again, it’s the same old thing. Allegiances are so important to maintain, because without them you’d be nothing.

There is no secret that Max Irons is following in the footsteps of his famous father, Jeremy Irons.
The 27-year-old English actor chatted with E! News on Wednesday, Oct. 9 in New York City about his acting dynasty family and his future plans.
“I know, people throw that word dynasty around,” The White Queen star revealed. “I don’t know. I guess I do, both my parents are actors and their parents are, but they thankfully kept me away from all the more superficial sides of this business, thankfully.”
But his parent’s experience didn’t stop them from feeling nervous about their son taking a similar career path.
“They know how unpredicatable this business, how tough this business can be in many ways,” Irons explained. “And they do let me do it now, but they neither encourage or discourage, they just let me do it. They don’t give me advice as to what my career should or shouldn’t be, which I sort of appreciate.”
But his career isn’t the only thing that is heating up: Irons is moving to the Big Apple to be with his girlfriend!
“I’ve been coming here every year since I was a kid,” he said. “And every time I come, it kind of gets richer and deeper and better.”
So, when is he relocating across the pond permanently?
“I’m moving out here mid-November,” he said. “I’m moving in winter which is gorgeous, you know we have Christmas trees are coming up. I like big coats. What’s not to like?”
No better time of year in New York City!
