Excalibur Pin-up FRAMED # 1 Nigel Terry as King Arthur


SKU: 10875 Category:


Nigel Terry (born 15 August 1945) is an English stage and film actor probably best known by film audiences for his portrayal of King Arthur in John Boorman’s Excalibur (1981). However, he has had a long career in classical theatre. Excalibur is a 1981 dramatic fantasy film directed, produced and co-written by John Boorman that retells the legend of King Arthur and the knights of the Round Table. Based solely on the 15th century Arthurian romance, Le Morte d’Arthur by Thomas Malory, Excalibur features the music of Richard Wagner and Carl Orff, along with an original score by Trevor Jones. It stars Nigel Terry as Arthur, Nicol Williamson as Merlin, Nicholas Clay as Lancelot, Cherie Lunghi as Guenevere, Helen Mirren as Morgana, Liam Neeson as Gawain, Corin Redgrave as Cornwall, and (then relatively unknown) Patrick Stewart as Leondegrance. The film is named after the legendary sword of King Arthur that features prominently in Arthurian literature. Shot entirely on location in Ireland and employing Irish actors and crew, the film has been acknowledged for its importance to the Irish filmmaking industry and for helping launch the film careers of Neeson, as well as Gabriel Byrne, Neil Jordan and Ciaran Hinds. A remake was announced by Warner Bros., Legendary Pictures, and Spyglass Entertainment in late 2009 with Bryan Singer attached to direct, but this has been shelved indefinitely as of October 2011.
