Queen Cleopatra is one of the most famous women ever in history and has become a cultural icon. But over time the ancient Egyptian ruler has been hugely misunderstood and misrepresented and she has become more well-known for her relationships with Julius Caesar and Marc Antony than for her fierce intellect and strategic genius.

Now, Jada Pinkett Smith is determined to right that wrong and has produced and narrated a Netflix docu-drama that attempts to uncover the truth about the powerful Queen.

Starring Casualty‘s Adele James as Cleopatra, John Partridge as Julius Caesar, Craig Russell as Marc Antony and Michael Greco as Cleopatra’s brother Pothinus, and using the testimonies of real-life experts and historians, the educational series documents the Queen’s rise and fall.

“We don’t often get to see or hear stories about Black queens, and that was really important for me, as well as for my daughter, and just for my community to be able to know those stories because there are tons of them!” says Jada, wife of Hollywood actor Will Smith. “Cleopatra is a queen who many know about, but not in her truth. She’s been displayed as overtly sexual, excessive, and corrupt, yet she was a strategist, an intellect, a commanding force of nature, who fought to protect her kingdom and her heritage is highly debated. This season will dive deeper into her history and re-assesses this fascinating part of her story.”

So here’s everything you need to know about the Netflix series Queen Cleopatra

Queen Cleopatra cast — Adele James on playing Cleopatra

Adele James played Tina Mollet in the British medical series Casualty and has also starred in Nate & Jamie, Doctors, The Corona Connections and Acceptable Damage. On playing the iconic Queen Cleopatra she told us: “Cleopatra has been misunderstood and misrepresented over time,’ says British actor and former Casualty star. “She’s been over-sexualised and not credited enough for the intelligent, brilliant, political leader she was. There’s so much more to Cleopatra than meets the eye, than what we think we know from Hollywood versions of her.

“I’m so pumped to play Cleopatra! It’s the role of a lifetime and top of my bucket list as she’s one of the most iconic human beings that ever lived. It’s also the first time I’ve led a series on my own and the first time I get to hear the famous Netflix ‘Ta-DUM’ when my work comes on TV!

“I’m no Egyptologist, so just surface-level stuff that I learnt at school or from Hollywood versions of her played by actresses over the years such as Elizabeth Taylor, Vivien Leigh and Sophia Loren. Thankfully, this is a docudrama, so the script had so much detail. The drama mixes in real-life ‘talking head’ experts to give a very thorough picture of Cleopatra.

“The most exciting thing for me is being able to humanise the icon. We show the human being behind what it was to be a woman in power in Ancient Egypt; a Queen, a Pharaoh, a mother. We show the rise and fall of Cleopatra, picking up her story when her father dies and she becomes co-ruler, then ruler of her country – and remember, she was only 18! We also spotlight her intellect – she spoke nine languages – and her relationships with Julius Caesar, Mark Antony, her children and the political decisions she made with her advisors. She was just brilliant.

‘Transforming into Cleopatra took hours! I think the first costume fitting was at least seven hours long. She has quite a few looks – as a warrior, mother, queen, scholar – and there are some epic scenes where Cleo’s all glammed up. I also had combat training and had to learn how to ride a horse.”

On getting this big Netflix role Adele reveals: “I started auditioning a few months after coming off-air in Casualty. I sent an audition tape of myself – heard nothing – then had two recalls and a call last spring saying I’d got the role and needed to fly to Morocco to start filming in two days! I was in A&E at the time, trying to get emergency medication as I thought I had tonsillitis – it was crazy!”

It was quite a gear change, from filming Casualty in Cardiff to a Netflix blockbuster in the desert as Adele explains: ” It was difficult to process! But I had to be present and focus as I knew it’d be over in the blink of an eye. We filmed in Ouarzazate, which they call the Hollywood of North Africa, and it was manic, as being in most scenes meant so much rested on my shoulders. In some ways, though, having to think on my feet was somewhat similar to what Cleopatra went through as the ruler of a nation. I was trying to lead a production as she was trying to lead a nation – and possibly conquer the world! It gave me a small appreciation of what her life may have been like.”

The series has experienced some criticism for portraying Cleopatra as having African heritage but Adele addresses this casting controversy: “I anticipated some people may be a little ruffled by it. The conversation about her identity, with regard to her race, is a big question mark, and many have made assumptions about who she is, without knowing the full picture. This series shines a light on bits of history that have been conveniently left out. Given that there’s academic research and historical evidence that supports why they cast me – a bi-racial actress – in the role, I’m surprised the response was so strong. And I’m extremely disappointed that anyone thinks it’s OK to racially abuse anyone for any reason, let alone for an acting role.”

“Both John Partidge and Michael Greco (see below) were fun, which was important as the material is so heavy – she had a very dramatic life! I had to do a whole day of birthing scenes one day, so to have people like John and Michael to make you laugh and lift your spirits was great.”
