According to PBS, Mark Rylance is adapting the last book in the Thomas Cromwell saga ‘Wolf Hall’, titled ‘Wolf Hall: The Mirror and the Light’. Charlie is to play his son Gregory Cromwell, a role previously played by Tom Holland in the 2015 series.

In Season 3, adapted from Real Tigers, the third novel in the Mick Herron series, a romantic liaison in Istanbul threatens to expose a buried MI5 secret in London. When Jackson Lamb (Oldman) and his team of misfits are dragged into the fight, they find themselves caught in a conspiracy that threatens the future not just of Slough House but of MI5 itself.
Some of you might remember that back in 2015, Charlie was cast as the lead in David Fincher’s comedy series ‘Videosyncrazy’ about a struggling music video director.
