8 Projects to Watch Featuring the Cast of My Lady Jane
One of the reasons why Prime Video‘s My Lady Jane works so well is because of the ensemble cast. Each character has their own moments which are often filled with humor, and lots of it. The series, which premiered on June 27th with all 8 episodes, combines comedy, fantasy, and some history as it re-tells the story of Lady Jane Grey. She famously reigned as Queen for only nine days in 1553 before being executed and the throne taken by Mary Tudor.

Many of the cast can be seen in other projects – maybe some you have already seen. Here are 8 movies or shows to watch featuring the cast of My Lade Jane.
