The first four official photos published for Become Elizabeth feature both Alicia von Rittberg as Elizabeth Tudor and Tom Cullen as Thomas Seymour. Two feature Cullen, one featuring the actor in character riding a horse against a gray background while the other simply depicts him staring stoically out the window in costume. The other two also feature von Rittberg in character, dressed to the nines while sporting a serious expression in one and standing staring into the distance while wearing what looks like some sort of cape in the other.
