Lady Chatterley’s Lover: Meet The Hot Men Starring In The New Adaptation

If you’ve yet to read Lady Chatterley’s Lover by D.H Lawrence yet, the story follows one woman’s sexual awakening – that was so controversial at the time of publication [in 1928] it was banned, thanks to Lady C’s steamy encounters.

And now Lady Chatterley’s Lover is been revived for the BBC’s Literature season with rising star Holiday Grainger, 27, taking the lead. But it’s not just about the female star – the new adaptation has a roster of male talent too, from up and comers to former Prince’s [on screen]. Check out the gorgeous gents in this season’s hottest period drama. You’re in for a treat!

Richard Madden

No longer Prince Charming, ‘Cinderella’ star, Richard, is taking on the gruffer role as gamekeeper, Oliver Mellors. The 29-year old actor will set pulses racing as he embarks on a passionate affair with Lady Chatterley with several hot-under-the-collar moments. ‘Poldark’ fans will appreciate his topless in the woods scene. Hottest gamekeeper in the game? Fact.

James Norton

James is used to playing a villain [remember his dark turn as a psychopath in ‘Happy Valley?’] and his upcoming role is no different. The year’s breakout star, 30, will be taking on the role of the deeply troubled and war-wounded Sir Clifford Chatterley, husband of Lady C. So nice to have you back on our screens, James.

Edward Holcroft

actor Edward Holcroft, first appeared on our radar this summer, after a rumoured fling with Prince Harry’s ex girlfriend, Cressida Bonas. But the 27-year old is now making headlines for his acting chops rather than his love links. The posh totty will play Duncan Forbes – who is also romancing Lady Chatterley. We can’t wait.
