The Sheriff's right-hand man

Richard Armitage will be playing Guy of Gisbourne in the BBC's new Robin Hood drama series.

The costume

"We were beating the living daylights out of each other!"

"He kind of looks like a biker. This is the costume designer letting her imagination run wild...

Notts roots

"My parents are from Leeds and Leicestershire. I had an aunt who lived in Nottinghamshire, so regularly as a child we were up in the Forest crawling under the great oak.

"I was kind of surprised when they said they were going to Hungary to film but there's not a lot of Sherwood Forest left.

Fighting

"We did two weeks of intensive horse-riding, sword play, fighting, broad swords and archery. We were beating the living daylights out of each other!"
