It’s been over a month since it was announced that Star Wars legend Mark Hamill would be joining the upcoming second season of History’s Knightfall, and now we have our first look at Hamill’s character.
In the below photo from History, we see Hamill in his role as Talus alongside series star Tom Cullen who plays Landry. Hamill is nearly unrecognizable sporting a long, grey beard and some prosthetic scarring on his face.
So far, we know that Hamill’s character Talus is 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. In other words, Hamill’s role sounds like he’s a total badass!
Check out the photo below.
In addition to Hamill, Tom Forbes (The Bastard Executioner) and Genevieve Gaunt (The Royals) are also joining the cast in season two. In addition to Cullen, the series also stars Pádraic Delaney, Simon Merrells, Olivia Ross, Bobby Schofield, Sabrina Bartlett, Ed Stoppard, Julian Ovenden, and Jim Carter. Aaron Helbing is on board as showrunner and executive producer.
