The Gilded Age - Carrie Coon to Star after Recasting

Carrie Coon has been set as one of the main leads in Julian Fellowes’ drama The Gilded Age at HBO. The nine-episode series is a co-production between HBO and Universal TV.

Coon will play Bertha Russell. She replaces Amanda Peet, who originally had been cast in the role but had to pull out over scheduling issues. The Gilded Age, which films in New York where the period drama is set, was slated to begin production this spring. With all Hollywood production suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic, the series is eyeing a new start of production in the fall when Peet no longer will be available.
