Subject: Michael Gambon to play Churchill

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/26/15 at 12:50 pm

ITV has confirmed that Sir Michael Gambon will play Sir Winston Churchill in a new feature-length film called Churchill's Secret.

The two-hour drama will co-star Lindsay Duncan as his wife Clementine, or "Clemmie", and is based on Jonathan Smith's book The Churchill Secret: KBO.

It's set during the summer of 1953, when Churchill was prime minister for the second time, in his late 70's and suffered a life-threatening stroke, which was kept secret from the world.

It starts filming next month in London and at Churchill's family home, Chartwell in Kent. It will also air in the US on PBS in 2016.
