Breaking News ! A first look at Channel 5's upcoming period drama Anne Boleyn has been revealed as a trailer for the mini-series, starring a Peterborough-born actress has been released. Jodie Turner-Smith, 34, was born in Peterborough to Jamaican parents, before moving to the United States. The actress, who is best known for her work in Queen & Slim, will take on the iconic role of Anne Boleyn, Henry VIII's second wife in the psychological thriller. Jodie is the first black actress to take on the role of the infamous monarch's wife, who failed to give him an heir to the throne by not giving birth to a son. In the dramatic trailer, a sombre looking Jodie can be seen walking slowly away from Henry VIII's subjects, in a black 16th Century dress and white veil, with the signature necklace of the 'B' threaded onto pearls sitting proudly in the centre of the shot. The teaser-trailer may only be 20 seconds long, but it creates a powerful feeling of suspense, with Jodie's muted expression foreshadowing the terrifying fate history has told us to expect for her.
