Wrong actor for Edward
2 March 2009 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This would have been OK if only they had chosen a more suitable actor for Edward. Stephen Campbell Moore is 14 years too young for the role of Edward as he was in 1936. He comes across as the nice boy next door who made everyone proud by winning a scholarship. He does not seem at all like a playboy prince of doubtful brainpower. Campbell Moore's Edward would have been intelligent and dutiful and would never have given up the throne for an American divorcée. This comes over very strongly in the scene where his father, George V, tells him "You disgust me". Not even the most crusty old Victorian could have said that to clean-cut Campbell Moore.

Ms Richardson is good as Wallis, except that she is rather better looking than the original.

Actually, I preferred the old version with Edward Fox and Cynthia Harris.
