Naomi will play Gertrude Bell, “a writer, archaeologist, explorer, cartographer and political attache for the British Empire. [She was] one of the first women to graduate from Oxford at the turn of the 20th century and traveled through the Middle East, defining the borders of Iraq, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.”

Rob will play T.E. Lawrence, “a British Army officer whose writing earned him international fame as Lawrence of Arabia, on whom David Lean‘s classic 1962 epic is based. Lawrence was a good friend to Bell over the years, as the duo helped establish the Hashemite dynasties in Jordan and Iraq.”
