and beautiful of villains whose motives are often concealed. The King relies on the advice of The Cardinal, his shrewd wife Queen Anne and also Captain Treville (Hugo Speer), the brave and respected commander of The Musketeers who keeps an eye on the soldiers to ensure they stay out of trouble. The series bursts with escapism, adventure and romance and is set to thrill audiences with cracking stories!
Created by Adrian Hodges from MY WEEKEND WITH MARILYN and PRIMEVAL, and scheduled to premier on the small screens in 2014, THE MUSKETEERS show will have dashing Luke Pasqualino ("Skins", "The Borgias", "Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome") playing the lead role of D’Artagnan alongside Tom Burke ("Great Expectations", "The Hour") as Athos, charismatic Santiago Cabrera (whom you remember as amazing Lancelot in BBC's "Merlin") as Aramis and Howard Charles (Royal Shakespeare Company) as Porthos. They all play a crack-team of highly trained soldiers. Meanwhile, Peter Capaldi ("The Hour", "The Thick of It"), Tamla Kari ("Cuckoo", "The Inbetweeners Movie"), beautiful Maimie McCoy ("Loving Miss Hatto"), and Hugo Speer ("Bedlam") will also star in this thrilling ten-part, fresh and contemporary take on the classic characters created by Alexandre Dumas in his much-loved novel.
