Jessica Parker Kennedy & Hannah New: 'Black Sails' Ahead at Monte Carlo TV Festival

Jessica Parker Kennedy wows in a black number on the steps of the Ministere d’Etat on Monday evening (June 9) in Monte-Carlo, Monaco.

The 29-year-old actress was joined by co-star Hannah New the morning after, presenting their show Black Sails during the 2014 Monte Carlo TV Festival at the Monte-Carlo Bay resort.

Black Sails is set in 1715, when the Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean is at its height and the former British colony of New Providence Island is now lawless territory controlled by the most notorious pirate captains in history. As the British Navy returns to these waters and the threat of extinction looms, Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) finds an ally in Eleanor Guthrie (New), the daughter of the local smuggling kingpin who is looking to make a name for herself, and together they devise a plan to hunt the ultimate treasure and save their home.

FYI: Jessica wore a Boulee dress and ASOS heels to the photo call.

I hope her character gets treated better in season 2. Forever pressed that the CW canceled The Secret Circle
imnotasquirrel 11th-Jun-2014 09:31 pm (UTC)
Definitely hope she has more to do. I'm cautiously optimistic because of how her character arc ended in season 1...ofc maybe they'll just use that to tear her back down again.

I also want Vane to get his.

Fingers crossed she comes back slaying in season 2. Her and Billy... unf.. so tall... and that body...

i am so fucking over rape as a plot device in general but especially in her storyline
bee_q Re: Jessica is gorgeous11th-Jun-2014 10:10 pm (UTC)
I agree, it was the 1 thing that almost made me stop watching the show.
allodio Re: Jessica is gorgeous11th-Jun-2014 10:27 pm (UTC)
for real, it actually made me stop watching GOT, but at the very least here they havent thrown it on other female charactersfor the hell of it/sexualised it/made excuses for it

Idk who they are but they're both super pretty
imnotasquirrel 11th-Jun-2014 09:34 pm (UTC)
I know their relationship is all sorts of fucked up but I just want a happy ending for their characters.

mammary_glands 11th-Jun-2014 09:49 pm (UTC)
i don't want them back together (and tbh i see the writers going down the romance route w/ flint and eleanor) but i do what them to be powerful bad bitches and business partners.

anne bonny x max lowkey otp
imnotasquirrel 11th-Jun-2014 09:52 pm (UTC)
Noooo, Anne and Jack belong together.

I hope they don't go there with Flint and Eleanor, but I suppose it'd be preferable to Vane and Eleanor.
mammary_glands 11th-Jun-2014 09:55 pm (UTC)
but she leaves him tied to the bed and insults his floppy semis, he deserves better tbh i'll settle for a threesome

ia. i hope they stay far away from vane/eleanor. anything/everything is better than that.
imnotasquirrel 11th-Jun-2014 10:01 pm (UTC)
~that's just how anne rolls~

mammary_glands 11th-Jun-2014 10:07 pm (UTC)
alright, alright. otp. i just want them to be buds with max and have her replace vane as their third musketeer *prays*
mammary_glands 11th-Jun-2014 09:46 pm (UTC)
i kind of miss this show (ahem, a lot), mostly for jessica parker kennedy. what a stunner.
allodio 11th-Jun-2014 09:52 pm (UTC)
i got to the end of the season before i realised hannah new is that lazy cow in the nescafe azera ads

looking forward to season 2 now pls

calendarbaby 11th-Jun-2014 10:34 pm (UTC)
why's it always gotta be black
snark_ranger 11th-Jun-2014 11:16 pm (UTC)
I find JPK oddly "girl I would know in real life" hot.
watermeloncholy 11th-Jun-2014 11:19 pm (UTC)
i stopped watching this because the one relationship (theirs) i was interested in turned out to be meh
waxandstrings 11th-Jun-2014 11:20 pm (UTC)
i love jpk so much, i'm so bummed i wasn't able to get into this show. i did ship them in the first few episodes though, shame they're clearly not going anywhere with it.

I never heard of this show. Is it any good? I want to watch it for jessica since I love her in the secret circle and I'm still mad the show was cancelled
michelleantonia 12th-Jun-2014 12:29 pm (UTC)
Yes, it's definitely good, give it a try!
ragechill 12th-Jun-2014 03:24 am (UTC)
I always meant to watch this for JPK and I never did. I love her. I'm going to try and catch up.
michelleantonia 12th-Jun-2014 12:28 pm (UTC)
I fucking love this show, can't it be back tomorrow?!
prophecypro 14th-Jun-2014 10:06 pm (UTC)
