‘Mary Queen of Scots’ Fact Check: Was Queen Elizabeth’s Ambassador Actually Black?


...There were people of color in England during that time. According to the U.K. national archives, Elizabeth would have employed black servants and musicians, and even had a black chambermaid, though seeing a person of color as high up as Lord Randolph would have been improbable, Rourke said, however, that she didn’t see any reason that these actors couldn’t play these prominent roles in “Mary Queen of Scots.”


Adrian Lester, who plays, Lord Randolph, grew up 40 miles from the birthplace of William Shakespeare
