Omundson Puts The Gallant in Galvant

I can scream from the rooftop how much I love Galavant.

The main reason is actor Timothy Omundson, who plays King Richard.

As a huge fan of period piece drama, I knew I’d be watching Galavant. It had kings, queens, maidens and knights. And I’ve always had a fascination with King Arthur and The Knights of the Roundtable.  I read I Am Modred by Nancy Springer , Mary Stewart’s The Prince and The Pilgrim and The Mists of the Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley.

But having Omundson as one of the stars as King Richard is a television feast fit for a king (no pun intended).  I knew Timothy Omunson’s work from the numerous things I’ve seen him in Xena:Warrior Princess, Nip/Tuck, Legacy and Early Edition.  But my curiosity was piqued as to how such a serious dramatic actor could pull off musical comedy.  After all, Timothy Omundson had just played Cain “The Father of Murder” on The CW’s Supernatural. 

I can say with 100% certainty that I have not been disappointed. Timothy Omundson’s flair for comedy matches his flair for drama.  Additionally, his musical chops reminds me of Robert Goulet (Actually, physically Omundson bares a striking resemblance to Goulet).

If you haven’t seen Galavant, I suggest that you change that.  You will enjoy it and be delighted by Timothy Omundson.

Galavant Season 2 premiere airs Sunday, January 3, 2016 at 8/7c on ABC.
