Joely Richardson To Portray Catherine Parr In Final Tudors Season
It will be Julia as Catherine Parr.
Nip/Tuck's Joely Richardson will portray Henry VIII's sixth wife in the fourth and final season of Showtime's The Tudors.
Richardson, who plays Dr. Sean McNamara's (Dylan Walsh) former wife Julia in FX's plastic surgeon series Nip/Tuck, is scheduled to play Parr, the final wife who outlived Henry VIII (Jonathan Rhys Meyers), in five installments.
The Tudors, currently filming in Dublin, will complete its reign on Showtime, beginning in 2010. It will chronicle Henry's dark, final days, his war against France and his time with his fifth wife Catherine Howard (Tamzin Merchant) and Parr.
The series has been nominated for five Emmys this year, including costumes, casting and cinematography.
