Emma Thompson to play the Queen in palace intruder drama

London, Fri, 24 Feb 2012 ANI

London, Feb 24 (ANI): Emma Thompson will play the Queen in a TV drama called 'Walking The Dogs', based on the famous case of Buckingham Palace intruder Michael Fagan.


Thompson, 52, will recreate the scenes where the monarch was confronted in her bedroom by the man, in the biggest royal security breach in the 20th century.


Eddie Marsan will play Fagan, who broke into the Queen's bedroom in 1982 after scaling the 14ft wall of Buckingham Palace.


The Queen was famously said to have spent ten minutes talking to him after he pulled back the curtains on her four-poster bed.


In the drama, to be screened by Sky Arts in the spring, the Queen and the intruder are shown discussing love, family and personal freedom before the police arrive and take him away, the Daily Mail reported.


Fagan, who was 31 at the time, was initially charged with the theft of some wine from the palace but the charges were later dropped and he went on to be detained for several months in a psychiatric hospital.


His encounter with the Queen was actually his second visit to the royal household, after previously scaling a drainpipe and scouting round the corridors before leaving.


In the drama, Russell Tovey plays a footman who had been walking the royal corgis instead of guarding the bedroom in the film, part of a new series of comedies and dramas called 'Playhouse Presents'. (ANI)
