Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands Star To Attend MCM London Comic Con


Stars from the new ITV drama Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands, including Kieran Bew (Da Vinci’s Demons), Ed Speleers (Downton Abbey) and Laura Donnelly (Outlander) will be appearing on an exclusive panel at MCM London Comic Con on Saturday 24 October to discuss the production of the ITV fantasy epic.

beowulf-Kieran BewThis action-packed 13-part drama series, produced by ITV Studios, is set in the mythical Shieldlands, a place of spectacle and danger populated by both humans and fantastical creatures. Kieran Bew takes the lead as one of literature’s greatest and most enduring heroes, Beowulf. Ed Speleers plays Slean and Laura Donnelly takes the part of Elvina.

Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands is a series about courage, greed, betrayal, revenge, loyalty, power, man versus wilderness and, of course, love. It is a series that explores the notion of good and evil, heroes and villains.  However, beyond these wider political undercurrents and inner personal turmoils are the excitement, danger and sense of adventure that any great Western has. Epic fights, thrilling chases, raids, celebrations and battles are an essential part of the promise.

Beowulf: Return To The Shieldlands also stars multi-award-winning actor William Hurt (Humans, Kiss Of The Spider Woman), acclaimed actress Joanne Whalley (Wolf Hall, Jamaica Inn), David Harewood (HomelandBlood Diamond), Ian Puleston- Davies (Coronation Street), Lolita Chakrabarti (My Mad Fat Diary, The Casual Vacancy), Elliott Cowan (Cilla, Da Vinci’s Demons), Ellora Torchia (Indian Summers), Joe Sims (Broadchurch), Lee Boardman (The Interceptor, Da Vinci’s Demons), David Bradley (Broadchurch, The Strain), Ace Bhatti (Black Work, The Shadow Line), Gregory Fitoussi (Mr Selfridge, American Odyssey), Emmett J Scanlon (The Fall, Hollyoaks), Susan Aderin (The Last Detective), Kirsty Oswald (Ripper Street), Edward Hogg (Indian Summers), Alex Price (Father Brown), Jack Rowan (Silent Witness) and Itoya Osagiede (Okora: The Prelude).
