I've noticed that the lead character in these historical British-American co-productions is almost always played by a British actor! It's become something of a cliché. Doesn't the US have enough fine actors of its own to take the historical lead for a change? I'm sure there are plenty of fine American actresses capable of taking on Catherine the Great and other historical lead roles. Do they not feel confident enough or something?
Come on America, don't keep leaving it all to the Brits. Get down and muck in there!
