Garnon Davies shoots Da Vinci’s Demons, a BBC Worldwide drama series about the early life of Leonardo Da Vinci, written by David S. Goyer, co-writer of The Dark Knight Rises Trilogy and Man of Steel.

Set during the Italian Renaissance in the 15th Century, Da Vinci’s Demons follows the untold story of the young genius Leonardo Da Vinci, during his early years in Renaissance Florence. As a 25-year old artist, inventor, swordsman, lover, dreamer and idealist, Da Vinci struggles to live within the confines of his own reality and time, as he begins to not only see the future, but invent it.

Garnon Davies shoots alongside English Actor Tom Riley (Monroe, Bouquet of Barbed Wire) and Laura Haddock (Upstairs Downstairs, How Not To Live Your Life).

Most of the shooting will take place at a new elaborate set in Wales built to resemble 15th century Italy. The filming will take place at a new 265,000 square feet of studio space in Swansea Gate Business Parkon Fabian Way in Neath Port Talbot. Location shooting will take place in Swansea, Neath and Port Talbot, including at Margam Castle.


Welsh born Garnon Davies trained at Webber Douglas and is best known for his role as series regular Elliot Bevan in Channel 4's Hollyoaks. Other Television credits include Da Vinci's Demons for Starz/BBC Worldwide and a guest lead on Doctors.

Garnon has recently been working on new writing for Dirty Protest, Pentabus and Sherman Cymru.
