Jacob Fortune-Lloyd has been in a lot of frock flicks, but a lot of those frock flicks aren’t showing up online so this list might seem deceptively short. That said, I first became aware of him in The Queen’s Gambit (2020), and I’m seeing him crop up more and more in movies since then. So, I apologize for the seemingly short list here, but I assure you, you will recognize him in many more films than the ones listed here that had images available online.
One of the earliest roles I noticed him. I wish we would get another series out of Wolf Hall…
I loved this series about the early years of the legendary Inspector Morse, probably more than the original series. Jacob Fortune-Lloyd plays one of the many characters the young Morse comes in contact with in 1960s Oxford.
The Importance of Being Earnest (2018)
Ok, this is actually a stage play, but there are good shots of the production online, so I’m including it. Fortune-Lloyd plays Jack Worthing, the play’s protagonist.
Fortune-Lloyd plays Bishop Fracesco Salvieto in this (yet another) adaptation of the infamous Medici family.
He plays Townes in The Queen’s Gambit, one of Beth’s chess adversaries.
I really enjoyed this film, and I urge you all to watch it. Great costumes, great cast, great story.
