Edward Seymour
Max Brown
Played by Max Brown

As brother to the King's third wife, Jane Seymour, Edward stood much to gain from Henry 8 and leveraged his ambition to rise to power as a member of the royal court. Upon the eventual death of King Henry, Edward's young nephew, Prince Edward Tudor, became King Edward VI of England, with Edward effectively ruling as Lord Protector.

Max Brown was born in Yorkshire, England. His acting break came playing the role of Liam in the 2006 horror film TURISTAS. His film credits include RED TAILS (2009), ACT OF GOD (2009), and DAYLIGHT ROBBERY (2008). Before that, he built up a reputation in a range of TV roles, notably as Danny Hartston in GRANGE HILL (BBC 2001), Mark Russell in CROSSROADS (Carlton 2001), and Sam Grey in the hit BBC One drama MISTRESSES (2008), as well as roles in BROOKSIDE, DOCTORS, and CASUALTY.
