ITV.COMExclusive first look image and all star cast announced for ITV’s Vanity Fair, as production begins on location in Budapest and the UK

ITV and Amazon Studios today announce that Oldham-born actress and rising Hollywood star Olivia Cooke has begun filming as Becky Sharp for the ITV adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s Vanity Fair. Cooke (star of Steven Spielberg’s forthcoming film Ready Player One) will be joined by a star-studded cast including musician and actor Johnny Flynn (Genius) as Dobbin, Martin Clunes (Doc Martin) as Sir Pitt Crawley, Frances de La Tour (The History Boys) as Miss Matilda Crawley, Suranne Jones (Doctor Foster) as Miss Pinkerton and Michael Palin as Thackeray himself.

Also joining the ensemble cast are Claudia Jessie (Line of Duty) who plays Becky’s confidante Amelia Sedley, with theatrical titan Simon Russell Beale and Claire Skinner (Outnumbered) as her parents, and David Fynn (School of Rock) as her brother Joss.

Already announced are Tom Bateman (Murder On The Orient Express) who takes the role of Captain Rawdon Crawley and Charlie Rowe (Salvation) as George Osborne.

Filming started in Budapest, with the shoot then continuing in locations in and around London.

Gwyneth Hughes’ adaptation of Thackeray’s literary classic is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and follows modern heroine Becky Sharp as she attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society. Her story of “villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting and dancing”, takes her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes as she goes.
