Actor who portrays Robb Stark in hit TV series will play opposite Lily James in Disney’s live-action version of the classic folk tale
Disney’s big budget, live-action take on Cinderella appears to be following in the footsteps of Tim Burton’s $1bn Alice in Wonderland fantasy as director Kenneth Branagh puts together a mostly British cast. With Downton Abbey’s Lily James already cast in the title role, the Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Game of Thrones’ Richard Madden will play her prince.
Madden, who plays Robb Stark in the highly-rated HBO fantasy series, will take the role which, as tradition demanded, was named Prince Charming in the 1950 Disney animated version of the tale. Cate Blanchett has been cast as the wicked stepmother.
