The Queen & Slim actor is set to portray the second wife of Henry VIII in three-part psychological drama Anne Boleyn, which explores the final months of her life from a feminist perspective.
Following widespread excitement about the casting, which marks one of the few times a Black actor has played a royal figure on UK TV, fans were treated to a first teaser clip showing Turner-Smith as Boleyn.
In the clip shared to Twitter on Wednesday (7 April), the actor star is shown walking through the royal court in traditional dress.
A first image was also shared with Variety, showing Boleyn and Henry VIII (played by Mark Stanley) looking close.
Anne Boleyn, which is written by Eve Hedderwick Turner, finished filming in Yorkshire in December and will air later this year.
Turner-Smith is joined by an impressive cast including Paapa Essiedu, Amanda Burton, Thalissa Teixeira, Barry Ward, Jamael Westman and Lola Petticrew.
Anne Boleyn comes to Channel 5 later this year.
