Joss Stone Joins The Tudors


In her first major acting role, British soul and R&B singer Joss Stone is joining the cast of Showtime’s drama “The Tudors” for its upcoming third season.

The Hollywood Reporter says Stone will play Anne of Cleves, the fourth wife of Henry VIII (Rhys Meyers).

A daughter of a German nobleman, Anne was betrothed to Henry in a marriage treaty between the Cleves Court and the king’s chancellor after Henry was shown a portrait of her.

Upon Anne’s arrival to England, Henry was disappointed in her looks and soon found a legal way to have the marriage annulled.
