Pierrefonds Day 4  
Not such a great day today – there was some filming in the village set with Richard and Colin, but the main crew was up on the converted football field filming a tourney. Lots of knights on horses charging across – it was beautiful, but there was no cast there. They mostly had a lazy day :) There were press in and Katie was doing a piece for Digital Spy, but I couldn’t get back in time from the tourney to catch a photo – sorry!

The funniest thing was probably the ladies who work at the castle – they had seen me on French regional news the night before (!), and came running up to me as I entered the courtyard to give me a present. They had been clearing up from the day before in the banquet room and had found something – Bradley’s waterbottle!! Apparently fame does open doors :)

Sorry about the fact a lot of these are grainy – they’re all taken at my maximum zoom…

Richard is having a plastic rainhat put on

The stallholder is giving Gaius something

And again

Then he puts it in his bag

Tourney field!

Other end where the tents are

Pretty horses and knights

The charge at half speed

At full speed!

Tarrento - Bradley's horse - out in front!

Another charge take


The brazier went a little crazy, so these are a little smokey

Rehearsing - the scene involved Gaius telling off Merlin, then them both walking under the cover of the Rising Sun

They're holding bottles to relieve their throats from the smoke :) We think. And there are smiles here!

Colin's lovely fingers!

Me and Bradley's water bottle

I love that they gave you the bottle as a souvenier. That's so funny. Am totally jealous about you seeing the tourney and all.

You on the news!

You won't want to mix with us mere mortals now :)

(Good on the waterbottle)

Bradley's water bottle! Did you take a drink from it? And you were on the news! Oh, wait, I think I saw that - AND WONDERED IF YOU WERE SOMEONE FROM LJ. Ah-ha! Thanks for all the pics.

A tourney! So exciting that you got to see that. And it is hilarious that they saved his water bottle for you.

I've just gone over all your PF picture posts and will make this a blanket 'thank you for sharing' comment so as not to spam your inbox :D

Ahahah that water bottle! That will make a beautiful mantel-piece trophy, and once the action figures come out, you can get a mini Merlin and Arthur to defend it against a mini dragon attack! ;)

Wow, Bradley's lips touched that bottle.

You lucky woman!

OMG ! Hi! I was in Pierrefonds that day too! I was the one that told you about the Katie interview ! =)
Was it the props crew that told you about the whereabouts of the filming ?
