The Knights Templar were the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of great destruction.
KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.
Who’s on board?
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with everyone on board KNIGHTFALL. The project was created by Jeremy Renner’s producing partners, Don Handfield, and Richard Raynor. Jeremy himself is on board as an executive producer. With the fantastic Dominic Minghella at the helm (showrunner, writer and executive producer).
As well as the incredible producers, writers I also got to work alongside amazing actors, too. While I take on the villainous role of Roland, leading man Tom Cullen (you might recognise him from a little show called Downton Abbey) does a stellar job as Landry, Simon Merrells as Tancrede, Pádraic Delaney as Gawain and Ed Stoppard playing King Philip, with the wonderful Olivia Ross as Queen Joan. Bobby Schofield plays the role of Parsifal a commoner who joins the Knights Templar pursuing vengeance and the excellent Sam Hazeldine as Godfrey the Master Knight Templar, legendary Jim Carter as Pope Clement V, Nasser Memarzia as Draper and Akin Gazi as Rashid. There are many others in key or leading roles and you can take a look at the full cast on IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4555364
