3. The cast is stacked with a mix of fresh faces and veteran actors
A television series steeped in history is nothing without a skilled company of actors to bring that history to life on-screen. Thankfully, the team behind Knightfall assembled a group of actors to take on the challenge of transforming dusty old names from the Middle Ages into compelling, three-dimensional characaters.
You’ll probably recognize Jim Carter, who stars as the affable yet politically minded Pope Boniface VIII, from his long and distinguished career in film and television; just a few of his notable projects include Shakespeare in Love, Downtown Abbey, and The Golden Compass. Ed Stoppard, whose work you might remember from The Pianist and Brideshead Revisited, shines as the ambitious King Philip IV.
Those somewhat newer to the small screen include Bobby Schofield as Parsifal, a peasant farmer who gets caught up with the Knights of the Templar after a tragic loss, and Sabrina Bartlett as Princess Isabella, the tenacious young daughter of King Philip IV.
