The BBC has released the first-look images of BBC One’s epic new event drama War And Peace, featuring Paul Dano, Lily James, and James Norton, and they look amazing.
Adapted by Primetime Emmy® Award winner Andrew Davies (House of Cards) from the epic novel by Leo Tolstoy, and directed by BAFTA Film Award nominee Tom Harper (Peaky Blinders), War and Peace follows aristocratic families affected by the French invasion of Russia in the early 19th Century.
Filming of the new BBC six-part drama event took place in Russia, Lithuania, and Latvia.
The all-star cast includes:
Paul Dano (12 Years A Slave, There Will Be Blood) as Pierre Bezukhov
Lily James (Cinderalla, Downton Abbey) as Natasha Rostova
James Norton (Grantchester, Happy Valley) as Prince Andrei Bolkonsky
