A female theatre dresser creates a stir and sparks a revolution in seventeenth century London theatre by playing Desdemona in Othello. But what will become of the male actor she once worked for and eventually replaced?
Kate Winslet was originally offered the female lead but she pulled out shortly before filming started.
I want to act.
King Charles II: Then act.
Ned Kynaston: I want to act as I did before.
King Charles II: You mean the girls' parts.
Ned Kynaston: If you will.
King Charles II: I won't.
When Pepys is telling Kynaston to play a man's role, Kynaston's lips are out of sync with his speech in some shots.
