This was a terrific opportunity for me to design the lighting for such a range of very large and exceptionally beautiful sets. Built over two stages in Cardiff, Wales, I gained so much from working on this scale. The show had a brilliant ensemble cast and was the first time the Alexa had been used in the UK on a drama. I chose to shoot with the Master Primes to give the series a rich and warm feeling to the photography.
