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’s also set to play the main role in Midas Man, an upcoming biopic of the Beatles’ (among others) manager, Brian Epstein. I’m hoping that turns out well, because Epstein was fascinating in his own right and could use more recognition. But it remains to be seen if the movie will actually do his life justice.
Absolutely loved him in the Queen’s Gambit. Their chemistry was spectacular.
I remember him from that episode of Morse. His character was a horrible person!
I would love a biopic about Brian Epstein, and he looks right for the part. But I agree, it is only to be hoped that they will do Epstein justice!
