BAZ BAMIGBOYE: From the chess club to the Cavern Club… The Queen’s Gambit star Jacob Fortune-Lloyd will play Brian Epstein in new Beatles-themed biopic


Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, who captured Anya Taylor-Joy’s attention on (and off) the chessboard in hit Netflix drama The Queen‘s Gambit, has played the best move of all by being picked to portray Brian Epstein, the Beatles’ legendary manager, in a new film that will shoot later this year.

Epstein was dubbed ‘the fifth Beatle’ by Paul McCartney; and when John Lennon heard of his death, from an accidental overdose in 1967, he declared: ‘He was one of us.’

The 33-year-old rising star was chosen for the part in Midas Man (An Unauthorised Autobiography of Brian Epstein) by director Jonas Akerlund.
