Emily Blunt and Chaske Spencer are starring in The English, a brand-new Western that premieres today on Prime Video. Blunt stars as an aristocratic Englishwoman, Lady Cornelia Locke, who teams up with Spencer's Eli Whipp, a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout. Cornelia and Eli "come together in 1890 mid-America to cross a violent landscape built on dreams and blood" in the show, written and directed by Hugo Blick.
"What I love is it’s the birth of America — it’s a story within the story of America. There’s been some amazing things this country has done," Spencer said. "There’s also been horrific things in this country, like any other country. It opens the conversation about that and where we’re at today. There are things that still haven’t changed. There’s still a lot of things we can work on. I think people who watch this will have a good time watching the adventure. I just think that people can relate to the struggles of what’s going on in the story."
"It can dance between being witty and violent and beautiful and funny," Blunt said of the show. "It can be all of those things. And people are all those things as well." Here, where to stream her new Western show:
