More news from the production (they're in Cordoba right now) of Jose Luis Moreno's lavish epic TV saga GLOW AND DARKNESS (Resplandor
y Tinieblas) which has now added Mira Sorvino and Geraldine Chaplin to the cast that already includes Jane Seymour, Joan Collins and Denise Richards. The 9 episode English language series, planned as a 3 season saga, will see Dominic Andersen portraying Francis of Assisi who lived during the life and times of some of the most important figures of the Middle Ages who met him during the 13th century, a spectacular period of history ruled by ambition, cruelty, religion and the clash of Christian and Saracen cultures. The historical figures that we will see include Richard the Lionheart (Steve Buyers), queen Eleanor of Aquitaine (Jane Seymour), Pope Urban II (Bruce Davison), Ferdinand of Navarre (Daniel Lundh), Frederick I Barbarossa (Adrian Bouchet), Frederick of Swabia (Callum Kerr), Hermann of Thuringia (Sander Jan Klerk), Raymond III of Tripoli (Joe Layton), Henry VI (Robert Maaser), Saladin (Adam Bond), King Baldwin (Landher Iturbe), Maria of Champagne (Denise Richards), King of Jerusalem Guy de Lusignan (Marc Hughes), prince of Antioch Reynald De Chatillon (Bart Edwards), Roger of Moulins (Aron von Adrian), Walter of Brienne (Myles Clohessy), John I Lackland (James Cartwright), Balian of Ibelin (Fernando Gil) and many others.
