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!
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.
