Here’s the newly released video interview with actor Hugo Speer, who plays Captain Treville in the BBC TV series, The Musketeers.

In the interview, which took place during filming for the 2014 series, Hugo says “I think The Musketeers will appeal to a very, very large audience just on the grounds that it’s great story telling. It is adventure, it’s romance, it’s action, all the best qualities that you’d like from good story telling and it’s all in this, and who can resist it?”

“It’s a story that everyone knows as well, so a modern take on it with great cast, great writer. . . The sets are beautiful, I think it’s beautifully shot, it looks amazing and I think all of those together will make it a very, very popular show.”

Going by the very strong viewing figures for the first few episodes, Hugo’s words are proving to be most prophetic. Plus you’d have to agree the sets and costumes do look pretty amazing.

The Musketeers continues Sunday nights on BBC One, with series catch-up available on BBC iPlayer.
