To celebrate the release of the first season of Starz’s hit new show The Spanish Princess, which is airing now, we sat down with some of its cast to find out about the show and why it will be your next big binge.

The show returns viewers to the world of Tudor royal court intrigue, continuing the story from the Starz miniseries “The White Queen” and the Starz limited series “The White Princess.” It’s told uniquely from the perspective of the women, but it also sheds light on the lives of people of color who were living and working in 16th-century London. Teenage Catherine of Aragon (Charlotte Hope), the strong-willed Princess of Spain, is promised in marriage to the English Prince Arthur. When he dies suddenly, the throne seems lost until she sets her sights on the new heir, the charismatic and headstrong Prince Harry.

We sat down with stars Charlotte Hope, Laura Carmichael, Stephanie Levi-John and Nadia Parkes to discuss their characters, working together and why now is the right time to tell this historic story.

The Spanish Princess is now showing on Starz.
