Emilia Schüle plays the lead role of »Marie Antoinette« in the new series by Canal Plus Creation Originale.
“Oscar-winning screenwriter Deborah Davis (“The Favorite”) delivers a feminist take on Marie-Antoinette, the last queen of France who’s often been depicted as a frivolous airhead… Schüle pulls off a riveting performance as Marie-Antoinette, an Austrian noble who is married off to Louis-Auguste, the future king of France, while she’s still a girl and wreaks havoc with the court’s peculiar customs”.
