BREAKDOWN
Elizabeth:
Female, 35-50 any ethnicity. Queen of England. Complicated and layered at times manipulative and uncertain as jealousy consumers her--but always formidable, radiating power and holding her own in a male dominated world.
Mary Stuart
Female, 35-50 any ethnicity. Queen of Scotland, prisoner in England. Equally complex she is beautiful and charismatic with a hypnotic power that captures those around her. Often level headed but capable of fiercely letting loose when the chips are down and she makes her passionate case.
Hannah Kennedy:
Female, 50-70, any ethnicity. Mary Stuart’s nurse, Hannah cared for Mary since birth. Faithful and fierce protector of Mary and her royal rights. An intelligent fighter with a soft heart. –May have a trace of an Irish brogue.
Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester:
Male, 40-55, any ethnicity. Changeable, crafty and sometimes weak willed but handsome and charming if a bit oily. Has multiple alliances and a thirst for attention, recognition and love.
Sir Amias Paulet:
Male, 40-65, any ethnicity. Proud, strong and kind he places fairness above all else. Though unabashedly partisan he will not stand for anything that departs from the letter of the law. Will boldly challenge anyone he distrusts.
George Talbot:
Male, 40-69, any ethnicity. Earl of Shrewsbury, thoughtful and deliberate with a strong sense of justice.
William Cecil, Lord Burleigh:
Male, 40-79, any ethnicity. Lord High Treasurer, harsh, dark and powerful, he is fiercely loyal to Elizabeth and disdainful of Mary.
Sir Edward Mortimer/Earl of Kent:
Male, 25-40, any ethnicity. Sir Amias’s nephew, young, zealous, and passionate, dedicated to Mary’s cause and a bit of an opportunist.
Sir William Davison:
Male, 30-60, any ethnicity. Sir William is the Secretary of State, cautious and careful and ultimately a bit flustered when made the scapegoat by Elizabeth. Comically unwilling (unable?) to take initiative.
Count Aubespine:
Male, 40-60, any ethnicity. The French Ambassador.
Sir Andrew Melvil:
Male, 40-70, any ethnicity. Mary’s house steward. Devoted and kind, he becomes a priest to hear Mary’s last confession.
