Holliday Grainger Bounces Back From Canceled 'The Borgias' By Joining 'Cinderella'

They say when one door closes another opens, but it seems that for Brit actress Holliday Grainger, she's got more than the one door to choose from. While the actress is probably best known stateside for her turn as Lucrezia Borgia in the recently canceled "The Borgias," she's quietly been racking up appearances in stuff like Joe Wright's "Anna Karenina," Cary Fukunaga's "Jane Eyre," Mike Newell's "Great Expectations" and more. Now it looks as though she'll be donning yet more elaborate period costumes.

The actress has been in talks for the one of the mean stepsister roles in Disney's live action "Cinderella." She'd be coming aboard to work with fellow Brits in the form of actor/director Kenneth Branagh and titular princess Lily James, with Aussie Cate Blachett as the stepmom. That's about it really. For whatever reason this movie is amassing a cast from across the pond (Scotland's Richard Madden is the prince) but there are still a couple more sisters to cast.

Production will begin this fall, no release date yet. [The Wrap]

    How could The Borgias be cancelled? I thought it was one of the best dramas I've ever seen!!! Who can I appeal to to change this terrible decision? The writing, the acting, the venues, the music, the costumes, the political and religious intrigue, the incredibly beautiful and talented young actors Francois Arnaud and Holliday Grainger, the love scenes...! Give this another chance! Is it possible that somehow people missed this masterpiece? HELP!!! I am in shock!

    It wasn't cancelled because it wasn't a good show. It was cancelled because it was too expensive.

    She's too pretty to be only an ugly step sister
