King Edward

Spoilers:







Reading the cast list of TSL, online, I saw the name King Edward. That would usually mean that he might appear in the game. If so, wouldn't it be awesome if he was modelled after Sean Connery? I mean, Graham is modelled after Harrison Ford, and a King Edward modelled on Connery would be the perfect knight.

XD I had to look him up because I pay very little attention to actors, but once I realized who that was I found the idea really funny for some reason. I loved his character in the Indiana Jones movies. Wish he was in the one coming up as well.

You didn't know Harrison Ford?!   :o  Before Alexander came along, Indiana Jones/Han Solo was the love of my life.  I've had a crush on Harrison Ford since 1989.  ;]

In response to the OP--yeah, Sean Connery would make a good fit for King Edward.  I just remember the beard from "Quest for the Crown"...they'd have to make sure there was a long, Dumbledore-esque beard on the character.   ;)

For shame!  :P

Heh it's ok of course, my mind just easily wraps itself around a ton of actors' names and all kinds of stuff they've been in, but then I'm a huge movie buff ;)

And it would be a little amusing inside joke for Edward to be based on Sean...

Even cooler still, it'd be DMD's idea!   :)

They so should have polled the fans and asked who we wanted the characters to be based off of.  That would've been sweeeeeeeet.   8)

Is there a quote or evidence stating that King Graham was modeled after Harrison ford? I thought early behind the scenes promotional material and perhaps interaction magazine stated that artwork in the games were usually modeled after people that worked at Sierra.
Well, ya, King's Quest is on Earth. Daventry is very old city from a long time ago. It's in ruins now and people aren't quite sure exactly where it used to be. There are some archaeologists searching through the ruins, they think they know its Daventry. But its somewhere on Earth."-Roberta Williams http://kingsquest.wikia.com/wiki/File:Daventryisearth.ogg

I believe King Graham was only modeled after Harrison Ford in TSL.

(It has been noted that Graham in KQ5 looks like Patrick Swayze. :P)
