Facts

#Fact
1Robert's stepfather was Jack Williams, a highly regarded British polo player, developer of the modern game and an individual very involved with both the British Royal and foreign polo players nd teams including the Sultan of Brunei and numerous American teams and individuals. Under Williams'tutelage, Addie became an accomplished horseman and polo player. Williams'son and grandson are the well known British polo players, Nick Williams Sr. and Nick Williams Jr. Addie also spent time in Argentina, again with Williams. His family house in Sapperton in the Costwolds, near Cirencester meant that he was involved in polo every day through the season through much of the 1970s and early 1980s. He was renowned as a genuinely expert and experienced horseman and was an accomplished swordsman and former competitive archer.
2Son of a dancer and an American serviceman. Was adopted by a wealthy English couple at the age of 6 months.
3He and former "Robin of Sherwood" star Ray Winstone, who played Will Scarlet opposite Addie's Gisbourne, have both been in films about King Arthur. Addie played Mordred in John Boorman's "Excalibur" (1981) and Winstone plays Sir Bors in Antoine Fuqua's "King Arthur" (2004).
4Played two mythological villains: Mordred in "Excalibur" (which he got because of his resemblance to director John Boorman's son, Charlie, who played the boy Mordred) and Sir Guy of Gisbon on TV's "Robin of Sherwood" (1984); he was helped by his abilities as a horse rider.
5Took Katrine Boorman out to dinner several times while filming the movie "Excalibur." As a result of this, Katrine's father, John Boorman, did not speak to him for a while, which caused some problems on the set.
