Castle of Forge (interior)
Based in Northern Ireland, the production of Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves has also made a few trips to England, to Wells Cathedral. A magnificent 15th century building, Wells Cathedral was used several times during the filming. The sequence in which Edgin (Chris Pine) and Holga (Michelle Rodriguez) find Forge (Hugh Grant) was filmed in the cloister. A bench was installed by the teams to allow the actors to sit down but otherwise no significant changes were made.
In the heart of a magical kingdom
Wells Cathedral is one of the most important filming locations in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. A shooting prompted the authorities to close the building to the public for a few days. The presence of Chris Pine, Michelle Rodriguez and Hugh Grant encouraged many photographers to go to the scene to take precious shots.
Introduction to Dungeons & Dragons
The actors were not really familiar with the Dungeons & Dragons universe before starting the production. The studio therefore organized play sessions to allow the cast to better understand this vast universe. Chris Pine told Slashfilm: “My understanding of Dungeons & Dragons is quite new. My entry point into it is my nephew, who’s a huge player, and he’s played for six years with the same group of kids, with the same Dungeon Masters. He’s written his own campaigns and drawn his own maps. He took me in my family through a campaign that he wrote. And what I saw, especially for a family of actors, is how immediately accessible it is. It doesn’t matter if you know the Sending Stones or the mimics or whatever, the world of Dungeons & Dragons and roleplaying is acting. It’s improv. I played with my family and it was kind of a revelation. my father’s 82, my mom’s 76, I had no knowledge about it, my sister has no knowledge about it. Within 15 minutes, we were having the time of our lives and we didn’t have to know anything.“
The production benefited from the expertise of a Dungeons & Dragons game specialist, who was present throughout the shooting.
St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Wells is one of the masterpieces of Gothic architecture in Somerset, England.
Considered the most poetic of English cathedrals, Saint Andrew’s Cathedral in Wells took more than 300 years to build. Completed in 1490, it took the place of a first church erected for King Ina of Wessex in 705. Its remarkable character is due in particular to the presence of elements from the Perpendicular Gothic, Decorated Gothic or even Primitive Gothic and Cuvilinear Gothic movements. . She hosted the filming of the mini-series inspired by Ken Follett’s novel, The Pillars of the Earth.
