History’s just released the first official photo of Mark Hamill (the Star Wars film franchise) from season two of Knightfall. Hamill appears in the second season photo alongside series star Tom Cullen who’ll be reprising his role as Templar Knight Landry.
According to History, Mark Hamill will be playing a character named Talus. Talus is described as “a battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran of the Crusades, who survived captivity for ten years in the Holy Land and is tasked with training the new initiates to the Order.”
Season two of the critically acclaimed dramatic series is currently shooting in Prague.
Knightfall was created by Don Handfield (Touchback, The Founder, Kill the Messenger) and Richard Rayner (L.A. Without A Map). Handfield and Rayner serve as executive producers along with Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, Scott Rosenberg, Jeremy Renner, Cyrus Voris, Ethan Reiff, Rick Jacobson, Barry Jossen, and Arturo Interian.
The Knightfall Plot:
Knightfall goes inside the medieval politics and warfare of the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages who were entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most precious relics. The story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now, and the series goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks to learn who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.
Starring Tom Cullen (Downton Abbey, Gunpowder) as the courageous and headstrong Templar Knight, Landry, who last season we left grief-stricken but hopeful, season two will explore this dark time in history from the Templar perspective, embracing an authentically grittier, darker, and more brutal Medieval period than has ever been seen before.
