Ben Wishaw as Richard II, in "Richard II" part of "The Hollow Crown" series, played to perfection.

"Let's talk of graves, of worms, and epitaphs; / Make dust our paper and with rainy eyes / Write sorrow on the bosom of the earth." __Richard II, Act III, Scene 2. Credit: Ben Whishaw, The Hollow Crown: Richard II

A classic Richard, dark hair and scruffy facial hair. I like the crown and what a large focal point it is. I dont like the color palette used in this production, but I do like it stylistically (Ben Wishaw as Richard II, "The Hollow Crown" series).

Henry 'Bolingbroke' was the son of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster. Bolingbroke didn't make it a secret that he thought Richard II was a lousy king and unfit to rule. Richard banished him, and then stole his inheritance (and his title) when Gaunt died. Henry returned to claim his estates, saying that he just wanted back what was rightfully his. But he quite quickly changed his story -- he wanted to be king. He deposed Richard II and became Henry IV.

"For God's sake, let us sit upon the ground / And tell sad stories of the death of kings." The Hollow Crown: Richard II, with Ben Whishaw. His BAFTA, awarded for good reason.

A classic Richard, dark hair and scruffy facial hair. I like the color scheme as well as the crown. It's a very large focal point in this production (Ben Wishaw as Richard II, "The Hollow Crown" series).
