Bernard Cornwell visited the set of SHARPES CHALLENGE in
Rajasthan, and he explains, Its a treat for me to
visit the set, Im there in a purely supportive role. Sharpe
is Seans character now, he is the perfect Sharpe. Sean
is the best thing to ever happen to Sharpe and I believe Sharpe
is good for Sean too.
Im really pleased he agreed
to come back for more, its great to see the characters
come to life. In fact the television adaptations often improve
my books, so Im happy for them to do as they like.
I always think Sean plays villains
so well and Sharpe is a villain - but hes on our side,
so hes our villain."
