Romola Garai, Matthew Macfadyen, Daisy Lewis, Rachael Stirling and Tara Fitzgerald have joined the cast of the small-screen movie Churchill's Secret, ITV announced.Nice as it is to see ITV branching out like this, it'll be interesting to see which timeslot it's given. 9pm on a Sunday will be my guess. I'll update this post when it's broadcast to see if I was right.
Garai will play nurse Millie Appleyard and the others will play former Prime Minister Winston Churchill's adult children.
Based on Jonathan Smith's recently published book The Churchill Secret: KBO, the telepicture will be directed by Charles Sturridge. It stars Michael Gambon as the title character and Lindsay Duncan as his wife Clementine.
TV Romola Garai's signed to appear in a drama about the final months of Winston Churchill's life along with a cast which sounds like it would otherwise be appearing in a BBC Stephen Poliakoff drama, with Charles Sturridge, a director who usually works on Channel 4 and it's being made for ITV.
