OH plays Giant of Old in ITV's Victoria

Old Harrovian Laurence Fox (Rendalls 19913) will feature in the third series of British historical drama Victoria, playing another OH, Lord Palmerston (1795).

According to Radio Times, the series "documents a period of unrest, with the ruling classes in Britain facing the possibility of major political upheaval. The year is 1848 – Karl Marx has published his communist manifesto and the French have just overthrown King Louis Philippe I, leaving a heavily pregnant Victoria fearing she could be the next monarch to face the wrath of the public. But the young queen, played by Jenna Coleman, faces more trouble closer to home as she clashes with tiresome and high-handed Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston – who has rather different ideas of how to tackle the problem of Europe."
