 What To Expect

Young Catherin first arrives in Russia to get married to the Emperor Peter lll. He’s not a great ruler, and she has to tolerate him. When she first came to Russia married to the emperor, she expected sunshine, love and happiness. Instead, she had to deal with all the rude men around her and of course, her stupid husband.

Peter claims himself as “the most loved ruler in all of Russian history “. But in reality, he’s one of the worst rulers who doesn’t have respect for anything. He throws fruits at his servants for fun.

Catherine, later on, became Russia’s longest-reigning female ruler. But before that, she had tolerated her idiotic husband and all the social norms that kept her voiceless. The trailer hints us that she’s the one who plotted Peter’s(her husband) death to take down the throne.

This is what Elle wrote on her Instagram page while talking about portraying Catherine. “Playing Catherine was the greatest gift. I learned so much from this idealistic young woman who slowly finds her power in a patriarchal world. It’s time to rule Russia differently!”


Elle Fanning leads the cast. She portrays Catherine in the historical drama series. Nicholas Hoult plays the not so good king and Catherine’s husband. Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge, Sacha Dhawan, Sebastian de Souza, Bayo Gbadamosi, and Belinda Bromilow are the rest of the cast members.
