The lucky baby who gets the part as the young Edward VI will be starring in one of the most popular shows ever filmed in Ireland, and will be amongst a strong Irish cast.

Legendary Irish actor Peter O’Toole played the Pope in the last series, and singer turned actress Maria Doyle Kennedy played Henry’s first wife, Catherine of Aragon.

The show celebrated huge success in the past year, Bray woman Dee Corcoran having won an Emmy for costume design.
