2. Cullen stars as Landry, a ‘classic hero’ on a holy quest
When we first meet Landry at the beginning of episode one, “he’s a cocky, brash, maverick young knight who…feels safe because he believes that he has God on his side,” says Cullen, who disciplined his body and mind to take on the role. But during the Fall of Acre, Landry loses everything—the Holy Land, the battle, and most devastatingly, the Holy Grail.
Fifteen years later in Paris, “he is like a caged animal” pulled apart by contradictions, Cullen says. Though loyal to his brothers, he’s living a lie—though he is technically a monk, he’s having an affair with the most powerful woman in France. And while he is “the most fearless warrior in the Templar, he is starting to have a sense of his own mortality,” Cullen says.
