Emma Thompson is one of Britain’s top policial figures in the new HBO drama “Years And Years”.
The Oscar-winning actress, 60, stars as Vivienne Rook who takes control of the country by implementing an IQ test for any patrons who wish to vote.
“Years And Years” starts its timeline in 2019 before venturing into the near future to see how Rook’s political changes affected the lives of Britain’s people.
As as you may guess, some of the decisions cause waves and public paranoia.
Rory Kinnear, T’Nia Miller, Russell Tovey, Jessica Hynes and Ruth Madeley also star in the drama.
“Years And Years” premieres June 24 on HBO.
