There is a war going on between England and Scotland in season 2 of Princess of Spain, and a Tudor princess is at the center of the conflict. Last season, Prince Harry’s sister (now Henry VIII) sent Margaret “Meg” Tudor north – against her strong objections – to marry King James IV. At first glance of season 2, it is clear that she is having difficulty transitioning to life in a Scottish court. She has to raise her husband’s bastard children, along with her own two. In addition, James is overcoming her efforts to become more involved in politics.
If the person playing the Queen of Scots looks familiar, there’s a good reason. Georgie Henley, the actor who plays the character, played a role in a popular fantasy franchise.
Georgie Henley played Lucy in ‘The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe’
Henley’s role in Princess of Spain this isn’t the first time she’s shown a queen on screen. In 2005, she starred The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. In the film, she plays Lucy Pevensie, a girl who finds a portal in a closet to another world. At the end of the film, Lucy and her sister and brother defeat the evil White Witch and become the kings and queens of Narnia.
Henley went on to repeat her role as Lucy in the ensuing duo Biography of Narnia movies: Prince Caspian and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
Margaret Tudor will play a key role in Season 2 ‘The Princess of Spain’
So far, we have not seen much Meg this season of Princess of Spain. But it certainly has an important role to play in upcoming titles. The same thing happens for her sister Mary (Sai Bennett), who is marrying the King of France.
“Meg has a very big character in the back eight,” said presenter Matthew Graham Weekly entertainment in 2019. “We are fully following Meg’s story, just as we are following the story of Mary and her trials and tribulations in France with fat King Louis.”
“You’re watching Meg in the North with her story and how it intersects with Catherine,” said Graham. “Then, Mary in France and how that intersects and introduces Catherine. Catherine is the central linchpin in London. We look forward to Scotland and England moving in – and putting Catherine and Meg at the heart of that war and that politics. “
Henley talks about playing a historical character on ‘The Spanish Princess’
While looking at it Talking Food: Narnia Podcast in April 2020, Henley talked about playing a historical character. She shared her response when she discovered that real events were inspiring some of the most impressive moments in season 2.
“My character in the new picture has had a few moments [season] that we finished filming where I went up to the writers and said, ‘This didn’t really happen. You’ve accomplished this a bit, you’ve made this up. ‘And they’re like,’ Nope, this happened. Yes, it’s crazy but it totally happened. ‘”
