I updated the gallery with additional photo stills and various pictures of Claire Foy from different movies and tv-shows. Enjoy!
“The Crown” star Claire Foy is set to lead a new thriller from streamer BritBox U.K.
Eight-part thriller “Marlow,” from Motive Pictures and Endeavor Content, centers on feuding families the Marlows and the Wyatts, who have existed in the “Edgelands” of the Thames Estuary for centuries.
Foy stars as Evie Wyatt, who was born and bred in the Estuary and returns to the Edgelands — the place she lost her father to a firestorm 15 years ago — in search of answers. However, drawn back into conflict with the Marlow clan, Evie finds herself in a battle with its ageing patriarch, Tom Marlow.
The very British thriller draws on “ancient tales of revenge and fate” as well as local myths and legends. The series, which is due to go into production this fall, is created by BAFTA-winning screenwriter Tony Grisoni (“Southcliffe”) and Simon Maxwell (“Deep State”), who will both executive produce alongside Foy.
Motive Pictures was established in 2019 by CEO Maxwell, who was previously head of international drama at Channel 4. It is backed by Endeavor Content.
Foy said: “I’m delighted to be a part of this compelling thriller. Tony and Simon’s scripts are so evocative of place and redolent with atmosphere — and the twists, turns and mysteries at the heart of this drama are utterly gripping. Evie Wyatt is such a captivating, complex and beguiling character, much like the enigmatic ‘Edgelands’ which she calls home, and I can’t wait to get to step into her shoes.”
Will Harrison, managing director BritBox UK, said: “’Marlow’ is a daring and intriguing concept, and exactly the kind of original content we want to offer our subscribers. Working with the calibre of Claire Foy, Tony Grisoni, Simon Maxwell and the Motive team is a privilege and we can’t wait to get started.”
Maxwell and Grisoni added: “The Thames Estuary’s ‘Edgelands’ offer a unique and extraordinary world of mud, sea and infinite sky; of broken politics and dreams — the Thames mouth is at once a gateway to the world and the last wild frontier of our island existence. ‘Marlow’ is a uniquely homegrown saga, a character driven crime epic about where we’ve come from; who we are now; what we might become. We are thrilled to be working with the extraordinary talents of Claire Foy and, as the home for the boldest new British drama, BritBox is the perfect home for our show.”

Paul Bettany and Claire Foy are about to become embroiled in quite the scandal.
The Wandavision and The Crown stars have signed on to A Very British Scandal, BBC One and Amazon Prime’s follow-up to A Very English Scandal, TVLine has learned.
Foy and Bettany will portray the Duchess and Duke of Argyll, aka the key players in one of Britain’s most salacious divorce cases of the 20th century. Per the official logline:
Famed for her charisma, beauty and style, Margaret (Foy), Duchess of Argyll, dominated the front pages as a divorcee featuring accusations of forgery, theft, violence, drug-taking, secret recording, bribery and an explicit Polaroid picture all played out in the white-hot glare of the 1960s media.
Sarah Phelps (Dublin Murders) wrote the series, which will unfold in three 60-minute episodes and which will investigate the role institutional misogyny played in how the duchess was shamed in society and vilified by the press and the judicial system.
“I’m so excited to work with [director] Anne [Sewitsky], Sarah and Paul on this extraordinary project,” Foy said via statement, “and to explore through this story how often shame, judgment and controversy surrounds a woman’s sexuality.”
Foy, Phelps and Sewitsky are among the series’ executive producers. A Very British Scandal will be available on Amazon Prime Video in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and on BBC One and BBC iPlayer in the United Kingdom.
The series’ predecessor, A Very English Scandal, starred Hugh Grant and Ben Whishaw and chronicled the events leading up to England’s Jeremy Thorpe imbroglio.
The Shows Must Go On series will return from Monday to present a variety of streamed performances.
From 8 March, the channel will work with Letters Live to present a series of readings on its YouTube channel for seven days, free of charge. All donations will be going to The WOW Foundation, which runs the global movement that is WOW – Women of the World Festivals.
The streamed shows will feature women such as Olivia Colman, Adwoa Aboah, Gillian Anderson, Rose McGowan, Daisy Ridley and Caitlin Moran reading letters by women, about women and to women.
Aimie Sullivan, executive producer of Letters Live, said: “Letters Live have produced three shows on International Women’s Day over the years with our last live production to date landing on March 8, 2020 to close the 10th anniversary of the Women of the World Festival at the Southbank Centre, London. While we eagerly anticipate the moment we can produce shows for a live audience once again, we are delighted to partner with The Shows Must Go On, to share Letters Live further and wider and increase exposure and awareness for the incredible work of The WOW Foundation.”
