Kingmaker: a term that refers to a person or group that has great influence in a royal or political succession, without being a viable candidate. Kingmakers may use political, monetary, religious, and military means to influence the succession.
YAY!! Last year I filmed a series called Kingmakers and to celebrate the creation of season one: "Lazarus", there is a cinematic cut screening on Friday 22 May 2015. The red carpet screening will be held at the Greenwich Odeon Cinema. This event will be open to dignitaries from South Africa and the public.
The director is Nicholas Beveney who I first met on the set of No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. This has been a huge project taken on by Nick and his team; travelling to Africa to film this epic tale as well as much of it being located in the UK. I leapt at the chance to be part of this series because it was so different and exciting. It's rare to see a storyline like this portrayed on television.
If it seems like I'm being a little thrifty on the actual plot, it's because I'm sworn to secrecy! Hehehe. Yet the cinematic trailer below will give you a taster of what to expect.
