Henry Lloyd-Hughes to star in Madame Bovary

23 August 2013 8:52 AM, PDT | ScreenTerrier | See recent ScreenTerrier news »

Henry Lloyd-Hughes is set to star alongside Mia Wasikowska in a new  film adaptation of the Gustave Flaubert novel Madame Bovary.

28 year old Henry (represented in the UK by Curtis Brown) will play Charles Bovary, the provincial doctor husband of Emma (Mia Wasikowska) who endeavors to love her despite her revolt against the ordinariness of her life.

He's best known to TV audiences as Mark Donovan from The Inbetweeners, and played Kenneth Hume opposite Ruth Negga in the Shirley Bassey biopic, but after starring in British indies Weekender and period time-travel drama Dimensions,  this is his first major leading international film role.

This new adaptation of the classic novel by Rose Barreneche is described as a period piece that will remain faithful to Gustave Flaubert’s original story, but will be "a fresh retelling, emphasizing the more youthful and contemporary themes."

Madame Bovary will also star Paul Giamatti, Rhys Ifans and Ezra Miller. »
