If you follow this link you can also see Edmund in the trailer for The Duchess of Malfi. 

Edmund will be playing Harry Percy:

"Percy is the Earl of Northumberland's son. We find out in Act 2, Scene 2 that he's turned on Richard and has joined up (along with his dad) with Henry Bolingbroke's forces. He plays an important part in helping Henry win the English crown, but Shakespeare doesn't really develop his character much. Still, we get a sneak peek into what we can expect from his character in the sequel, Henry IV Part 1, where he becomes "Hotspur," the hot-headed nobleman who helps lead the rebellion against his former pal King Henry." - 

My gracious lord, I tender you my service,
Such as it is, being tender, raw and young:
Which elder days shall ripen and confirm
To more approved service and desert.
