Who will be James Brooke?
NOW that we know that the film White Rajah is going ahead, there is one question left: who will be playing the titular role?
While he remained tight-lipped about any potential names, here’s what producer Rob Allyn had to say about the subject: “Brooke came to Sarawak in his 30s. He was tall for the time, funny, good looking.
“He also has a certain sort of charisma and vitality.
“Really good characters have flaws, and James Brooke was flawed. We deal with those flaws in the script – his recklessness, repulsiveness, and everything.
“We’re talking to some really bigname British actors.”
With all those hints he’s dropped, and from past interviews, we’ve come up with three names that we think will suit the role.
