Anne Hathaway, one of the most successful Hollywood actress is going star in the upcoming TV series adaptation of Jennifer Steel’s “The Ambassador’s Wife”. This will be the first time since her cinematic debut that the actress appears in a TV series.
Anne Hathaway’s involvement in television heralds a TV golden age, because if such a successful actress is tempted to work on a TV series, then more will follow in her footsteps.
Since television has raised the bar significantly in the last few years, it has produced numerous exceptional series that have nothing in common whatsoever with the soap opera stereotype that some people still have the tendency to associate it with.
TV series such as Breaking Bad, The Sopranos and Game of Thrones have turned the world of television into a complex and refined one, that is worthy of high critical praise regardless of the size of the screen it is broadcasted on.
Then, last year’s True Detective came to make quite some significant changes, as it starred Hollywood giants Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson.
They proved that by allowing an actor to take his character and portray its evolution along the course of a few episodes, rather than only a couple of hours can lead to an actual cinematic masterpiece, because the viewer can actually create a bond with the character and also because it gives the actor enough time to go deeper and explore multiple layers of the character’s personality.
Since then, the second season of True Detective has included big Hollywood names, such as Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn and Rachel McAdams, thus proving that television is more and more of an appealing experience for some of the top actors of the moment.
Oscar winner Anne Hathaway is tailor made for the part she will be playing in “The Ambassador’s Wife” adaptation, as the show’s producer, Mark Gordon, has pointed out a statement, as reported by The Wrap.
“She is in a league all her own and we cannot think of anyone who can better portray Steil’s complex heroine.”, he said.
Seeing Anne Hathaway in a TV series is clearly going to be a en experience worthy of remembrance and we are all extremely excited about the development of the project.
