Brit thesps Roger Ashton-Griffiths and Robert Lindsay, and Irish actress Geraldine Somerville have joined the cast of Olivier Dahan’s “Grace of Monaco,” which Pierre-Ange Le Pogam is producing with Uday Chopra of YRF Entertainment and scribe Arash Amel.

Somerville will play Princess Antoinette, Prince Rainier’s older sister who was banished from the palace for attempting to take over the throne with France’s help.

Ashton-Griffiths is repped by Bauman, Redanty & Shaul and Curtis Brown Group; Lindsay by the Gersh Agency and Hamilton Hodell; Somerville by Markham, Froggatt and Irwin.
