Trivia

Jump to: Spoilers (1)
Tom Cruise chose Rebecca Ferguson, to be his co-star in Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation (2015) after he saw her in this mini-series.
In an astounding coincidence, Emma Frost, the writer of "The White Queen" BBC series, shares her name with a famous Marvel Comics "X-men" character, "Emma Frost, the White Queen," a member of the mutant clans. Yet this show, based on 16th-century historical personages, is in no way related to Marvel Comics or the mutants.
Catherine Goodall is the only actor/actress to be featured in both "The White Queen" and the follow-up series, "The White Princess".

The trivia item below may give away important plot points.

Interestingly enough, when Isabel Neville's mother, Countess Anne of Warwick, tells Isabel of her first child's death, she proclaims it to have been a baby boy. However, Lady Isabel actually had a daughter outside of Calais, called Anne of York (after her sister Anne Neville). Historical registries show that the newborn girl, Anne, "died at sea".
