Opening up about the joy of working with Pierce Brosnan, Cannon mentioned that he added ‘interesting layers’ to his character of King Rowan. As per a report by ANI, she said, “Pierce Brosnan is after all Bond, James Bond. He’s incredibly charming and has gravitas and wit that gives the King some interesting layers. I loved that he was always open to making fun of himself, especially his singing.” Cannon also spoke about how she felt lucky enough to have someone like Minnie Driver to play the role of the Queen. The director said, “She has a great singing voice, dry wit and sharp improv skills. She also hit the dramatic moments and made them land with a stinging ferocity.”
