BBC's new Robin Hood cast list and pictures

The new Robin Hood was filmed in Hungary rather than England as locations there can be more readily made to match medieval England. Of course it also affords a little more secrecy than filming at home.
There is still no sign of a Friar Tuck character, OR an arabic outlaw, but it is my personal opinion that both could be introduced in a subsequent series. Regarding the rest of the cast Robin Hood fans should be exited at the news Keith Allen will play the Sheriff of Nottingham. That fact alone should have you on the edge of your oak branch!
Above: Jonas Armstrong (Robin Hood), Lucy Griffiths (Maid Marian), Keith allen (Sheriff of Nottingham), Gordon Kennedy (Little John).
Below: Richard Armitage (Guy of Gisbourne), Harry Lloyd (Will Scarlet), Sam Troughton (Much), William Beck (Roy - whoever that might be!) The cast will also include Joe Armstrong as Allan A'Dale. (Note: Obviously these pictures are not taken from the series).

BBC new Robin Hood. Richard Armitage is indeed an excellent choice for the role of Guy of Gisborne. I wonder how he'll shape up against Keith Allen as the Sheriff of Nottingham? I think that promises to be the most interesting combination of villians since "Robin of Sherwood". Most other interpretations feature either a strong Guy of Gisborne and a weak Sheriff of Nottingham (as was the case with Errol Flynn's film), or choose to involve just one of those characters.

I think Harry Lloyd should have a fan site. I've looked all over, he's really confidentiol about himself. He graduated last year...oxford uni...i wonder if he was popular with the girls! You can tell he's practically started with tv work, I've caught him looking at the camera a couple of times...but isn't he something? He's definately got a huge future!

Harry:
Was born in 1983, and started on such productions as Vital Signs, Holby City, and then started real work, on RH, Dr Who and Bash.

DID YOU KNOW: His great great great grandfather is Charles Dickens?

Yep, we knew. that's why it says on the sidebar "Harry Lloyd is the great great great grandson of Charles Dickens"...

But thanks for the link. Harry fans are always passing through here and will appreciate it. He's a firm favourite with most readers.

If you like Jonas check out his fight for the REAL Sherwood Forest at www.robinhood.co.uk Jonas is backing the bid to win £50m in a TV vote that will save the forest and safeguard it for the future, providing world-class facilities that millions of people can enjoy for free, restoring the greenwood and preserving a unique wildlife habitat! Go Robin! You've got my vote and I hope all Jonas fans will support the bid at www.thepeoples50million.org.uk

Is there going to be a third season of the show and if there is, Marion is going to be in it?

Current status is:

Yes there will be a 3rd season.

No Marian.

(So a lot less viewers). There are various rumours going around, all fuelled by an official semi-silence. Mostly I suspect because Tiger and the BBC want to sell the show, and fear it won't now be as marketable.

So.. I have heard some rumors that Lucy Griffiths will appear in the third season of Robin Hood BBC. What is true about this? Marion supposedly dies in the second season, but because many fans have protested against this, there have been rumors that she will be in fact in the third season. Do anyone know what is true about this?

You might already know this (?) but for details of the 2nd series visit here:

Regarding your question: Lucy wasn't contracted for a third series. (Neither were certain other key players).

At least one Lucy Griffiths fan site received an answer from her agent saying she was not returning to Robin Hood.

The BBC made a similar statement on one of their sites.

Keith Allen (Sheriff of Nottingham) is credited as saying she was filming for a third series and using his apartment to stay in.

Speculation is rife.

My opinion? She's gone. Any subsequent appearances could be in the manner of a "ghost", or "guiding spirit". Where money is concerned, everyhting is possible. (Remember Dallas?)

Marian (Lucy Griffiths) rocks and cannot leave the show! That would be descrimination since djack left and there would be no important female characters!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
