RICHARD III LIVES ON IN STARZ HISTORICAL DRAMA "THE WHITE QUEEN"

First Images From The Ten Part Series Featuring Max Irons, Aneurin Barnard And David Oakes

The discovery of Richard III's remains in a car park in Leicester, England may have determined how and where he found his final resting place but he lives on in the upcoming STARZ historical drama "The White Queen."

Before he was crowned King of England, Richard (portrayed by Aneurin Barnard) was Duke of Gloucester, brother to King Edward IV (played by Max Irons) and George, Duke of Clarence (David Oakes). The three, known as the Sons of York, are pictured below with additional images of Aneurin Barnard as Richard, Duke of Gloucester.

Set during the War of the Roses, this 10 part co-production with the BBC also stars Janet McTeer, James Frain, Rebecca Ferguson, Amanda Hale, Faye Marsay, Ben Lamb, Tom McKay and Eleanor Tomlinson. "The White Queen" will air on STARZ later this summer.

About "The White Queen"

"The White Queen" is the thrilling story of the women caught up in the ongoing conflict for the throne - they are some of the most ruthless players in history and will stop at nothing to support their own causes and those of the ones they love.

It is a stunningly rich tale of love and loss, seduction and deception, betrayal and murder, vibrantly woven through the stories of three different yet equally driven women, in their quest for power as they manipulate behind the scenes of history - Elizabeth Woodville, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville.

The year is 1464 and England has been at war for nine years battling over who is the rightful King of England - it is a war between two sides of the same family, The House of York and The House of Lancaster.

The House of York's young and devilishly handsome Edward IV (MAX IRONS - The Host, Red Riding Hood) is crowned King of England with the help of the master manipulator Lord Warwick "The Kingmaker" (JAMES FRAIN - True Blood, The Tudors). But when Edward falls in love and secretly marries a beautiful young widow, the commoner Elizabeth Woodville, introducing the exciting newcomer, REBECCA FERGUSON, Warwick's plan for control over the English throne comes crashing down around him. Frustrated by the new Queen's influence he will stop at nothing to maintain his grip on the King.

The captivating and beautiful Elizabeth Woodville marries for the love of her King, with the help of her mother Jacquetta (Academy & Tony award nominee JANET MCTEER) a self-proclaimed sorceress. Elizabeth's most fierce adversary is the staunchly loyal Lancastrian Margaret Beaufort (AMANDA HALE - "The Crimson Petal & The White") - a damaged and highly religious woman who would willingly lay down her life to see her young son Henry Tudor take the throne. And then there is Anne Neville (introducing FAYE MARSAY), Lord Warwick The Kingmaker's daughter - a pawn in her father's battle for control; who finds her strength and ambition when she takes control of her destiny and marries the King's younger brother Richard Duke of Gloucester (ANEURIN BERNARD - Ironclad, Spring Awakening).

"The White Queen" is made by Company Pictures ("Generation Kill," "Shameless," Skins," "The Village," "The Devil's Whore," "Elizabeth l," "Anna Karenina," "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers") and adapted by acclaimed writer Emma Frost ("Consuming Passions," "Shameless"). The series is produced by Gina Cronk ("New Tricks, The Palace") and directed by James Kent ("Inside Men," "Marchlands"). Executive Producers are: John Griffin, George Faber, Charles Pattinson for Company Pictures, Philippa Gregory, Eurydice Gysel for Czar Television, Polly Hill for the BBC and Colin Callender for Playground.
