British R&B singer Joss Stone has joined the cast of Showtime’s “The Tudors” says The NME.
Stone will play Anne of Cleves, the fourth wife of Henry VIII (Jonathan 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.
Stone joins the production during its third season which is about to head into production for airing early 2009.
