For Emmerich and his writer, American John Orloff (Band of Brothers, A Mighty Heart) Edward De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford (played by Rhys Ifans in the film) is a strong candidate. Ifans is joined by an all star cast that includes Vanessa Redgrave as the older Queen Elizabeth, her daughter, Joely Richardson, as the younger Queen and Rafe Spall as Shakespeare.
