Jeanne de Casalis, one of the most prominent actresses on the London stage, has been added to the cast of “Nell Gwynn,” ambitious film production which Herbert Wilcox has started making at Boreham Wood, near London, for the British & Dominion Film Corporation.

It is to be presented by United Artists. Cedric Hardwicke, England’s famous character actor, takes the part of Charles II opposite Anna Neagle. Samuel Pepys, the famous diarist of Restoration times, will figure in the background figures.
