Mary & George’s Julianne Moore on Mary’s sexual fluidity and queer relationship

Author: Tracy E. Gilchrist

Queen Elizabeth I was dubbed the “Virgin Queen,” but under her successor King James I, the court became a hotbed of sexual fluidity, as depicted in Mary & GeorgeNIamh Algar as Sandie, Julianne Moore as Mary, and Trine Dyrholm as Queen Anne of Denmark in Mary & George Julianne Moore as Mary and Nicholas Galitzine as George in Mary & George Courtesy STARZ

Of course, the key to Mary & George’s delicious drama is the twisted mother-and-son dynamic, given that she sends him off with instruction to woo the king first as a royal cup holder (not a euphemism) and later in the king’s bed chambers. While this mother and son’s machinations are often jaw-dropping, their same-sex affairs, while fiery, are thoughtfully rendered.

“I think you also see in Mary the same fluidity that George possesses,” Moore says. “They are people who are very comfortable in their sexuality and very comfortable using their sexuality to advance themselves if they need to. But it’s also something that they can enjoy themselves.”
