Margot Robbie transforms for Mary, Queen of Scots

Filming continues on location in England and Scotland on the Focus Features and Working Title Films production of Mary, Queen of Scots, starring Saoirse Ronan in the title role opposite Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I. Now, Yahoo has your first look at Robbie as she transforms for her role as the English monarch, which you can check out at the Twitter link below! The role has been played many times in film and TV, most memorably in recent years by Rachel Skarsten in the series Reign and by Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth and its sequel Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

Mary, Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth 1. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.

Joining the cast are Jack Lowden (DunkirkEngland is Mine), Joe Alwyn (The Sense of an EndingBilly Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk), Martin Compston (Sweet SixteenLine of Duty) and Brendan Coyle (Downton AbbeyMe Before You). Also featuring in the cast are David Tennant (Doctor WhoBroadchurch) and Guy Pearce (MementoLA ConfidentialThe Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert).

Josie Rourke, artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse, makes her feature directorial debut on the movie. The producers of Mary, Queen of Scots are Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner, and Debra Hayward, all Academy Award nominees as producers of Best Picture Oscar nominee Les Misérables.

Beau Willimon, an Academy Award nominee for The Ides of March and Emmy Award nominee for House of Cards, has written the screenplay adaptation. Mary, Queen of Scots is based on John Guy’s acclaimed biography My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots.
