"The Pillars of the Earth" New Beginnings (TV Episode 2010) Poster

(TV Mini-Series)


Eddie Redmayne: Jack



  • Aliena : Shall we call him Jack?

    Jack : No, no. No, Jack's the father I never knew. Let's name him after the father I did know.

    Aliena : Tom.

  • Merchant : [telling Jack about his father]  He was a storyteller and singer and my close friend. He taught me French when I first came here, and I taught him English. The prince, King Henry's son, hired him to sail with him across the channel.

    Jack : Prince William?

    Merchant : Your father called him the Phoenix Prince because of a ring he wore.

    Jack : Was it a signet ring?

    Merchant : Cut in the shape of a bird rising from fire. Prince William was accompanied by his wife and many people of his court, including your father, and they were never seen again.

    Jack : That was the White Ship. It was the ship that sunk with Prince William, King Henry's heir.

    Aliena : I thought no-one survived that sinking?

    Jack : My father survived it. He was on that ship.

  • Jack : I intend to rebuild the cathedral, Ma, but they won't hire a man who's living in sin.

    Ellen : *That* would eliminate everyone in their eyes.
