It looks like Cinderella has found her Prince Charming — literally! Last week it was announced that Downtown Abbey star Lily James would be taking on the role of Cinderella in Disney’s upcoming live action adaptation of the film.

On Wednesday, Disney confirmed that Richard Madden, who some may know as Robb Stark from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, will be taking on the role of the Prince.

Madden will also be joined in the film by Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett, who will be playing Cinderella’s evil stepmother.

It sounds like an interesting mix of actors to us! Thor director Kenneth Branagh is set to direct the film which is scheduled to begin production in the fall and slated to be released in 2014.
