Samantha Morton as Mary Queen of Scots


Although she only appeared in a few scenes in 'Elizabeth - The Golden Age' (2007), Samantha Morton was nonetheless, an impressive Mary Stuart.
It should be mentioned that the Scottish accent, as opposed to a French one, that Morton (and Saoirse Ronan in the 2018 movie 'Mary Queen of Scots') used is historically accurate. 
While Mary's formative years were spent in France, an English envoy who met her in 1569, described Mary as having a 'pretty Scotch accent'.
