It’s a heck of a role for any actress, Samantha Morton played the role alongside Cate Blanchett in the recent ‘Elizabeth: The Golden Age’. It’ll be interesting to hear her accent in ‘Mary, Queen Of Scots.’

    Your statement above that, quote :’the young Roman Catholic who became Scot;land’s queen for all of nine months’, is quite incorrect.

    Mary, Queen of Scots was forced to abdicate in 1567, while a prisoner of her rebellious Lords, in Lochleven Castle; an abdication which she immediately repudiated, on her escape in 1568.

    Her son became James VI of Scotland, as a child, in 1567, as a resu;t of his mother’s enforced abdication.

    Mary, Queen of Scots was crowned Queen of Scots only six days after her birth; and she remained Queen until her death, on 8th February, 1587.
