Thanks to Twitter, we can today bring you the first photos of Philip in costume for his upcoming role as Lord Talbot, in The Hollow Crown series 2. Filming has been taking place at Wells Cathedral, which has been turned into a medieval masterpiece this week.
Niall Pearce was there and snapped the following pictures of Philip on a cheeky tea break. (Click to view larger images.)
And Emma Goddard, also snapped a couple too. She'd only been there fifteen minutes and saw Philip - what great timing!
There is no filming tomorrow and the final day at the Cathedral is Friday - if any of our readers do go, we hope you get some pics and will be kind enough to share them!
