TENET’s Kenneth Branagh to Play Boris Johnson in This Sceptred Isle: First Photo

Kenneth Branagh will play British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the upcoming miniseries “This Sceptred Isle“. The first photo is revealed today!

Branagh is one of Britain’s most famous actors and directors. He began his film career with Shakespeare adaptations such as Hamlet and Much Ado About Nothing. In recent years, he has played many historical and fictional figures. One of the roles was the German officer Henning von Tresckow in Valkyrie.

What is “This Sceptred Isle” About?

This Sceptred Isle aims to reveal in all details how the government led by Boris Johnson met the first wave of the pandemic. The UK Prime Minister caught the coronavirus last March. He was treated in intensive care for several days. The five-episode mini-series was selected by Sky UK. The episodes will benefit not only from the UK’s political backlash but also from interviews and testimonies from various branches of the British government. Winterbottom, who made a travel series will also be producing the series through his own company Revolution Films.

When is the “This Sceptred Isle” release date?

It has been 10 months since the pandemic started in the UK and the country has started its third quarantine period. The mini-series which will feature the ups and downs in the UK will appear in the fall of 2022.

It looks like This Sceptred Isle will be a strong breakout and sort of a TV break in Branagh’s latest blockbuster movies. In 2017 Branagh starred in the World War II movie Dunkirk and this year’s “spy-science fiction” movie Tenet. Performing the psychotic Tenet and exquisite performance as Hercule Poirot in Murder on the Orient Express has got him up these days. Now, besides this series, he has an upcoming movie Death on the Nile. Audiences will also come together with Branagh for a closer and softer story.
