The Irish film festival has announced it will be screening the new film King Richard at its two-day celebration next week.
In the film, which stars Richard Armitage as the Duke of Gloucester, a Scottish courtier and politician, the film’s star, Henry Koepp, will play a man who is on a pilgrimage to Scotland and wants to meet the Duke, who is visiting his homeland as a guest of King Edward VII of England.
The Duke, known as the King, has been in Scotland for nearly a year.
Koepp told The Irish News: “I went down to Edinburgh and I saw him there and the Duke was there and I said, ‘That’s lovely’, I was a little bit shocked, and I thought, ‘Oh, my God, that’s amazing.'”
It’s a wonderful film, a very touching film.
I thought it was wonderful.
It’s a real moving film.
“The King is the story of a young lawyer who becomes entangled in politics and the corruption of the Scottish nobility, and is forced to make difficult decisions about the future of his family and country.
Kuep, who said he has been working on the film for six months, said it was a great honour to be able to be in Scotland with such a wonderful actor as Henry Kiepp.”
It was an honour to meet Henry Kielpp, who I’ve known for many years, and to work with him,” he said.”
He’s an actor who I admire and have a lot of respect for, and it’s a fantastic honour to work in such a fantastic environment.
“King Richard, which opens on Monday, will be shown in Glasgow on October 19 and 20.
