The King in the North to Be the Prince Charming in ‘Cinderella’

By  · Published on May 8th, 2013

Briefly: As previously promised, Disney has casually rolled out another tidbit of casting news via unassuming press release. The studio has just sent around word that their once-stalled live-action Cinderella now has a prince to join its recently-cast princess. The announcement reveals that Game of Thrones’ dreamy King of the North Robb Stark, Richard Madden, has just been cast in the film, where he will star alongside Lily James as the eponymous glass slipper-wearing lady love and Cate Blanchett as that evil stepmother, all directed by Kenneth Branagh. We can only assume he’s playing the prince role, because obviously.

Yes, most UK Cinderella ever. (Yes, we know Blanchett is Australian, but we also all know that Australia is a former British colony, so let’s go with it.)
