Hogg to play Robert Cecil in Emmerich’s Anonymous

RADA actor Edward Hogg

Michael Symons of Hamilton Hodell Talent Management in London confirmed today that Royal Academy of Dramatic Art trained actor Edward Hogg will play Robert Cecil in Roland Emmerich’s “Anonymous” set to begin filming in late March this year in Berlin.

“Anonymous” is set during the Essex Rebellion at the end of the long reign of Elizabeth I, when factions struggled over the succession. The queen’s counselor Robert Cecil cranked the levers of state, and his foster brother/brother-in-law, Edward de Vere seventeenth Earl of Oxford,  revealed the blood and glory as the author of the works of William Shakespeare.

An announcement today from Shooting Stars: Europe’s best young actors said Hogg will be honored at a Berlin film festival in February as the UK Shooting Star of 2010:

Edward Hogg was selected in November 2009 by an independent jury as the UK SHOOTING STAR 2010. Together with nine other young European stars, he will be presented to international professionals at the Berlinale from 13-15 February and honoured at a glamorous award ceremony in the Berlinale Palast by festival director Dieter Kosslick.
