Robin Hood was a Yorkshireman, claims Russell Crowe

Posted on: May 19, 2010

According to Russell Crowe, Robin Hood was a Yorkshireman.

While talking about his role in the new epic Robin Hood, the New Zealand born Oscar winner said he based the character on a Yorkshire outlaw from the village of Barnsdale which nestles on the border between Doncaster and West Yorkshire, reports The Telegraph.

Crowe even admitted he based his accent on South Yorkshire television personality Michael Parkinson.

“This is one of the first times that Robin has an accent that is close to his place of origin which I believe was Barnsdale,” he said.

“I believe he was associated with Nottingham but he wasn”t born anywhere near Sherwood -I think it was Barnsdale. The facts, if you can call them that, all point to that.”
