FILM crews were in Lacock today, which had been transported back to 1485 for its appearance in The White Princess.

The White Princess, a 2013 historical novel by Philippa Gregory, tells the story of Elizabeth of York, daughter of Edward IV of England and Elizabeth Woodville, and later wife of Henry VII and mother of Henry VIII.

The adaptation is a sequel to The White Queen, a 10-part 2013 series shown on BBC1 which adapted Gregory's novels The White Queen, The Red Queen and The Kingmaker's Daughter.

But American company Starz is producing the eight parts of the White Princess without involvement from the BBC.

The cast includes: Jodie Comer as Elizabeth of York; Jacob Collins-Levy as Henry VII; Essie Davis as Dowager Queen Elizabeth; Joanne Whalley as Margaret, Duchess of Burgundy; Michelle Fairley as Margaret Beaufort; Suki Waterhouse as Cecily of York; Rebecca Benson as Margaret Plantagenet; and Rhys Connah as Teddy Plantagenet.
