Speaking about taking on the role of Margaret from Vanessa Kirby who won a BAFTA for it Helena says: "I'm not sure which I am more terrified about - doing justice to the real Princess Margaret or following in the shoes of Vanessa Kirby."

About his role Ben says he is beyond thrilled to be joining the cast and that he is looking forward to playing the dynamic and complex Lord Snowden.
