Cullen returns to HISTORY’s knights templar drama series Knightfall as the handsome, headstrong and courageous Templar Knight, Landry. Having experienced a fall from grace last season and stripped of his Master of the Temple title, Landry finds himself on a path to redemption and must overcome his guilt by relearning the principles that once made him one of the most honorable, swift-thinking and skilled Knights of the Order. He will be joined this season by Mark Hamill (Star Wars, BAFTA-winning voice of The Joker) who is trading in his lightsaber for Medieval sword, as the series’ sophomore season embraces a more brutal view of this harsh time in history, and heads towards the ultimate demise of the Templar Order - which occurred on Friday the 13th, 1307.
Knightfall goes inside the medieval politics and warfare of the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages. 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. With the historical and ruthless downfall of the Templar Order on the horizon, season two focuses on themes such as power, redemption, revenge, betrayal, family, and ultimately an epic war between church and state. Hamill joins the cast as new character Talus, a battle-hardened Knight Templar veteran and initiate master who is tasked with preparing the next generation of men to proudly wear the iconic red cross on their chests and become “God’s Executioners.”
