'KNIGHTFALL' KNIGHTS TEMPLAR EPIC TV SERIES CASTS TOM CULLEN, SIMON MERRELLS, JULIAN OVENDEN, SABRINA BARTLETT, OLIVIA ROSS, PADRAIC DELANEY

'KNIGHTFALL' EPIC SERIES
CASTS ITS KNIGHTS AND QUEENS
Now, here's a new historical project for us to look forward to! History has announced the cast for their ambitious ten episode epic saga KNIGHT FALL produced by Jeremy Renner who will guest star as well. Robin Hood's Dominic Minghella will be the showrunner.

THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR
were the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting the Holy Grail and harbouring secrets capable of destroying the Church itself. KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clashes with both the King of France and Pope Boniface VIII, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th (a date which became synonymous with bad luck) the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. KNIGHTFALL takes you inside the world to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.

TOM CULLEN LEADS THE CAST
The lead role went to Tom Cullen (World Without End, Downton Abbey) who stars as Landry, a veteran warrior of the Crusades, who becomes the leader of the Templars and serves as the driving force behind their quest to retrieve Christianity’s most prized relic: The Holy Grail. Bobby Schofield will be Parsifal, a young man of ordinary birth who will join the Knights Templar seeking revenge, but ultimately finds a higher purpose. Da Vinci's Demons' and Poldark's Sabrina Bartlett is Princess Isabella, Queen Joan and King Philip’s daughter, her upcoming wedding stands to forge a powerful political alliance for France! Julian Ovenden is De Nogaret, King Philip’s Machiavellian lawyer and right hand man. Sarah Sofie Boussnina plays Adelina, as a child she was rescued in the Holy Land by the Templar Knights, but now in her early 20s, she lives on the streets of Paris as a thief! Padraic Delaney is Gawain, once the greatest swordsman of the Templar Order whose role with them is at a crossroads! Spartacus and Dominion star Simon Merrells isTancrede, a veteran sergeant fanatically devoted to the Templar Knight cause and Olivia Ross is Queen Joan of Navarre, Queen of France and Queen Regnant of Navarre, a devoted mother, warrior, and a formidable diplomat and strategist.

  1. Padraic Delaney looks a little bit like James McAvoy, I think. Especially around the eyes.

  3. This has definite potential. The legends provide rich fodder for storytelling.

    Dahlink, do you have another translation lined up since the most recent has published? How are things going with your publisher?

    1. I quite liked Tom Cullen in WORLD WITHOUT END and plus he's gay, so let us support him :)

      I've finished first two books of INFERNAL DEVICES saga and I'm starting the third one next week. After that I don't know, I'm guessing my main publisher will give me the new instalments in the sagas I've been doing, but I don't know outside of that. I'm still very much depressed about it, and I also feel hurt and gutted. Not exactly a summer you'd wish yourself, especially when you know how much blood, love, sweat and tears not to mention health I've put into all their books so far :( It just ain't fair and I'm still not used to accepting that life will never be fair

    2. what is the situation with your sisters, dear, are we meeting them this summer as it was planned? I'm ever so excited!

    3. I'm so sorry to hear you are still depressed dahlink. With the uncertainty with your publisher I would be as well. There should be a constant reward for what you do dear as not many peoples have such skill. No, life is not fair, especially for the good.

      Yes, they are talking about coming next month. I don't know if they will both come as Anne has had a stroke and is very self-conscious about it. She is also by nature reclusive like myself. I completely understand and if I don't meet her that is okay. I know she had wonderful adoptive parents and was happy growing up. That is the thing that haunts you with missing siblings.

    4. I don't think I've ever got a reward for any effort in my life, dear, there was a certain line when I realized that I have to work and be good for myself, because being good for others will never get you anything. So I just try to do my best in work and then swallow whatever punch life gives me again. I just have no strength anymore to dedicate myself fully to the feeling of disappointment or loss, I just try to be as numb as possible...

      You mean you won't see Anne like never, or just not this summer? I wish I was there to somehow give you support, this all excites me and makes me happy a lot... You know I've never had siblings, so I can only imagine what it feels like to suddenly have so many new sisters and brothers. What about the drummer brother? Will you ever see him? Is any of them reserved, or against involving each other in your lives?
