The Press and Journal (Inverness) - - NEWS -

Hugh Grant has been pic­tured as for­mer Liberal party leader Jeremy Thorpe. The Bri­tish ac­tor, 57, plays the late politi­cian in up­com­ing three-part TV drama A Very English Scan­dal, which tells of Mr Thorpe’s trial for con­spir­acy and in­cite­ment to mur­der his ex-lover Nor­man Scott. The first-look pic­ture shows Grant in char­ac­ter and his co-star Ben Whishaw as Mr Scott. It tells the story of Mr Thorpe who, in 1979, was tried but ac­quit­ted of con­spir­ing to mur­der Mr Scott.
