Grammy(R)-Winning Soul Chanteuse Joss Stone Joins the Cast for the Third Season of Showtime's THE TUDORS
Pop Singer to Star as Anne of Cleves, Henry VIII's 4th Wife
LOS ANGELES, Aug. 5 -- The blonde beauty with the Aretha
Franklin vibrato, Grammy(R)-winning songstress Joss Stone, will join the
cast of Showtime's THE TUDORS' third season, playing Anne of Cleves, Henry
VIII's (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) fourth wife. Stone will star in three
episodes, which are currently shooting in Dublin, Ireland, and will return
Hailing from Kent, England, Stone was a fresh-faced 14-year-old when
she won the popular BBC talent show, "Star for a Night." She wowed
audiences with her version of Franklin's "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural
Woman," stupefying the crowd when a booming, old-soul voice came bellowing
from the frame of a small blonde girl. In 2002, she arrived in New York
City, catching the attention of label CEO Steve Greenberg who signed her
and the two began work on her first CD, The Soul Sessions. The three-time
Grammy(R)-nominated singer-songwriter's three discs -- with sales totaling
more than 10 million albums -- have earned her industry acclaim and a
devoted fan base. Most recently, she has branched out into acting, landing
small roles in the 2006 fantasy film Eragon, and an episode of the CW
series "Gossip Girl."
Viewers and critics alike have been enthralled watching the storied
exploits of the sexy, hard-bodied King Henry VIII (Rhys Meyers) as he weds,
beds and beheads women and wives across 16th century England. Both Rhys
Meyers and the series have been nominated for Golden Globe(R) Awards, and
the series has won two Emmys(R) for its incredible costume design and main
title theme music. The new season will pick up after Anne Boleyn's
beheading, detailing Henry's doomed marriages to true love Jane Seymour and
the German-born Anne of Cleves.
THE TUDORS is an Ireland-Canada co-production, executive produced by
Morgan O'Sullivan for Octagon Films; Benjamin Silverman and Teri Weinberg
for Reveille Productions; Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title
Films, and Sheila Hockin; and is created, written and executive produced by
Michael Hirst. SHOWTIME presents the series in association with Peace Arch
