The Hollow Crown

Over the last fortnight, I have spent a number of days filming Series Two of the Hollow Crown: The War of the Roses.

In it, I kill a bunch of people, get killed a bunch of times and general hack my way through swathes of Yorkshire soldiers. I am dressed as a French solider: you can tell because I have a beard…

Anyway, the show has a bunch of cool people in it, including:

Judi Dench as Cecily, Duchess of York
Benedict Cumberbatch as Richard III
Sophie Okonedo as Queen Margaret
Keeley Hawes as Queen Elizabeth
Geoffrey Streatfeild as Edward IV
Sam Troughton as George
Ben Daniels as Buckingham
James Fleet as Hastings
Phoebe Fox as Anne

I’m not allowed to post photos from set, so here is one from Series One to give you a feeling for what it’s like:

About the Author
Ed Gamester is a silly man who lives in the United Kingdom. He is the harbinger of Ghost Squad, singer of Gay Bum and author of A Rum Run Awry. He fights, kills and dies for TV and films, and gallivants around the place wrestling, drinking and lifting things for glory and profit. Where Ed treads, there stamp the boots of the Guild. Ed does not wear glasses, but feels this photograph makes him look more intelligent and artistically talented than he is. Feel free to contact him: he is disappointingly affable.
