There is something of the Guy from Kingdom of Heaven in this, isn't there? Good observation. Csokas was menacing in the role.
(Enjoyable film, but not remotely historical. Guy wasn't too bright, but there's little indication he had a mean bone in his body.)
Yep. I've read the real world Guy followed the advice of the last person who spoke to him. Evidently Sybilla married him because he was handsome. Endowment—well, intellectual endowment, at any rate—was not a consideration.
Csokas makes him truly malevolent.
