Christopher Ecclestone as John Lennon

Posted by LiveFor on January 15, 2010


Here we have former Time Lord Christopher Ecclestone as Lennon.

It is for a BBC drama called Lennon Naked which charts his transition from Beatle John to enduring and enigmatic icon.

It was back in November 2009 that news of this project came out.

The film highlights the years from 1967 to 1971 when the Beatle was ending his first marriage to Cynthia as Yoko Ono entered his life, coping with the death of manager Brian Epstein and the group’s own messy and acrimonious disintegration.

Also featured are Naoko Mori, whose credits include “Torchwood” and “Absolutely Fabulous,” who plays Ono, and Rory Kinnear as Epstein.

Other cast members include Claudie Blakley, who featured in the BBC period drama “Cranford,” as Cynthia Lennon, and Irish actor Andrew Scott as Paul McCartney.
