The History Channel has revealed a new teaser trailer for Knightfall Season 2 and it provides us with our first footage of Mark Hamill as a medieval warrior. The role suits him perfectly.
Knightfall stars Tom Cullen and it 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. Knightfall 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.”
Hamill takes on the role of a character named Talus, who 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.”
When talking about Talus, showrunner Aaron Helbing says that the character “takes pride in the scars, because they made him who he is.” He also talked about his student Landry (Cullen), who is also in the photo, and explains:
“The two of them face off against each other, and it’s pretty brutal. The whole season is darker, grittier and more action-heavy.”
