BBC’s ‘The Hollow Crown’ films at Gloucester Cathedral with Benedict Cumberbatch


The much acclaimed BBC One series The Hollow Crown began filming last Monday at Gloucester Cathedral with stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Dame Judi Dench, and Keeley Hawes. The nearly one-thousand-year-old cathedral is a national landmark attracting thousands of visitors each year.

The series of films follows Shakespeare’s history plays of Richard II, Henry IV Parts 1 and 2, and Henry V. Benedict plays the role of King Richard III in the concluding part of the series.

Right now, Benedict is taking a break from the set to promote The Imitation Game in NYC but he is expected back soon.
