For The Alliance!
Dominic Cooper takes the throne
Who is King Llane?
From my perspective he’s a good man and he’s good to his people. He’s not an aggressor. He’s trying to do things as best he can with as little damage as possible. He doesn’t know which way to turn, and it seems that the more reliable route to take is the more trusting one, but it’s actually a big mistake.
Do you feel a responsibility to do right by the fans?
It became very apparent when we had the guys who created this game come down… to see them respond to what they’re seeing, to see someone’s dream and vision come to life like that was quite incredible. But it also made us realise how important it is for us, as characters within the world, to get it right.
Have you played the games?
It’s one of those things you’ve heard about, but I never played it. The film stands up on its own as a script. Even though we devote a lot of time to making it accessible to people who have been playing it for that long, it also needs to appeal to people who have no idea what it is.
How did you cope with Warcraft’s enormous armour?
The armour is tough. And horse riding. Doing the horse stunts with the armour. But I’ve got to say, I’ve never seen costumes like it, they’re absolutely magnificent. And the weaponry. Of course, because it’s Warcraft, weaponry is 20 times bigger than what you’d normally have to be dealing with, so everything is just enhanced.
