I don't want to give too much away, but my next project is steeped in the legends of Ireland and involves the mystique of the Irish Traveller community. But my research got me to thinking, what is it about old legends that hold our interest?
I think one of the first legends that I ever fell in love with was the legend of King Aurthur and that was thanks to the amazing 1981 film Excalibur. Again, it was a legend that had everything and has survived through the centuries. Even Buggs Bunny had a go at the legend!
So, that leaves me with the question, what is it exactly about legends that captures our imagination and survives the test of time?
