the French born Queen Isabella, Peter Firth as the coarse Knight Roland, Ben Chaplin as the handsome Sir Thomas Langley, David Bradley as the elderly monk Brother Joseph, Nora Von Waldstätten as Gwenda, and Sarah Gadon as Philippa. World Without End was produced by Tandem Communications (The Pillars Of The Earth, The Company) and Take 5 Productions (The Tudors, The Borgias) in co-production with Galafilm, in association with Ridley Scott and Tony Scott's Scott Free Films (The Good Wife).
