The period drama, also starring Lord of the Rings elf and ’90’s sweetheart Liv Tyler, the three-part drama will air this autumn on BBC One. It will follow Kit Harington’s Robert Catesby, the mastermind behind a conspiracy to blow up the British House of Lords and, in doing so, assassinate King James I.


Guy Fawkes Day commemorates this event every year on November 5th. Tom Cullen of ‘Downton Abbey’ fame will play Fawkes, while Liv Tyler will play Anne Vaux, Catesby’s cousin who becomes embroiled in the plot. 


Check out this teaser trailer and feast your eyes on your favorite GoT hero getting serious about a slightly different kingdom.
