New images of Margot Robbie on the set of Mary Queen of Scots have us doing a double-take. The Australian actress has been completely transformed into Queen Elizabeth I for the film, powdered skin, balding hair, and all.
Filming is currently underway in the U.K. for the project, which will center around Elizabeth and Mary's troubled relationship during the 16th century.
Earlier this summer, we also got our first look at Saoirse Ronan in the title role.
Based on the biography My Heart Is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots, by John Guy, the film will star Gemma Chan as Bess of Hardwick, a confidant of Elizabeth's, in addition to Ronan and Robbie. Other members of the cast include David Tennant, Guy Pearce, Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Martin Compston, and Brendan Coyle. Josie Rourke will direct.
The film is expected to be released sometime in 2018.
